Twitter’s December 2011 redesign adds new features that make it easier to reference, link and embed tweets. Here’s how it all works.
First, select the desired tweet with a single-click on its text. A bit more information will be revealed. To the right of the time/date stamp information, click on the word Details. (Note: This is a change from the previous web version of Twitter. You used to click on the time/date stamp itself.)
You’ll see the tweet displayed on its own unique web page:
Now click on Embed this Tweet. A three-tabbed window will appear with embed/link instructions. Here’s my example:
HTML: Copy and paste this code into your website to embed the Twitter-compliant tweet. Note: See my example at the end of this post.
<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet”><p>Week in review: Getting a bead on Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus? <a href=”http://t.co/0ABB4AoP” title=”http://cnet.co/vwHBD6″>cnet.co/vwHBD6</a></p>— CNET News (@CNETNews) <a href=”https://twitter.com/CNETNews/status/145220581703430144″ data-datetime=”2011-12-09T19:17:39+00:00″>December9, 2011</a></blockquote>
<script src=”//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js” charset=”utf-8″></script>
Shortcode: This is for websites that are shortcode-aware, like WordPress.
Link: A URL that you can share.
Example of embedded tweet:

This blog was… how do I say it? Relevant!!
Finally I’ve found something that helped me. Thanks a lot!
I really love your website.. Great colors & theme.
Did you create this website yourself? Please reply back as I’m planning to create my very own site and would love to
know where you got this from or just what the theme is named.
Thank you for your feedback! The theme I’m currently using is a customized version of Woothemes Canvas.
When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added”
checkbox and now each time a comment is added
I get several e-mails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
