    Here is a cool little feature that will allow you to embed a tweet into your post. (Thanks to Killer Nut91 for the suggestion!)

    It's rather simple but here is a rundown on how to do it.

    1.) Find the tweet you want to post.

    2.) After you find your tweet, click expand.

    3.) Find the details link then click that.

    4.) That link will open the tweet on a new page. Copy the 18 digit code.

    5.) Finally, on the post you want to tweet something, click the blue Twitter logo and paste the 18 digit code between the tweet tags.

    6.) Click post and your tweet will embed in your post!

    This is one way of doing this (there may be other ways) I just find this way to be the easiest to explain. All you need to do is find that 18 digit code and paste it between the tweet tags.

    The Tweet embedding works great and makes it easy to post. But I noticed today, they aren't picked-up by the forum's search function. I'm not sure how big of an issue that could be, but it's worth pointing out.

    If I am understanding you correctly, one of the limitations to the twitter embeds is that you can't actually search for twitter content embeds thru our search engine. That data is stored via Twitter's servers and not ours. All we are doing is posting the link to a specific twitter post.

    Right, for example: If you search "Alexis Texas" you won't get Killer Nut91's post from last year from UberFact's twitter account.

    So if I'm sharing a link to an article, I can do it the old fashioned way:
    Solange Knowles kicks, punches, claws Jay Z in elevator video at Met Gala after-party - NY DailyNews

    This gives keywords for future searches, but takes a lot of copying and pasting and time. I also need to manually add an image if I'd like one, and try to find one that is size-appropriate.


    Alternatively, I can use the embedded tweet:


    But now the forum search record would find no mention of Jay Z's ass-beating.


    I don't think it's a reason not to use the embedded tweet though. It too slick not to.

    Just paste the entire tweet URL in your message (or use the Media button)

    for example, what I used above was
    Code:
    https://twitter.com/ESPN_Numbers/status/469587574844309504
    It automatically wraps the URL as
    Code:
    [media=twitter]469587574844309504[/media]
