How to embed tweets on your Website or Blog

Angela West | Jan. 9, 2012
Twitter has had a busy past three months, launching a redesign, an open-source Android security tech, and Tweetdeck as a Web application. Now it's offering a way to make your website or blog more interactive with easy-to-embed tweets that require using just one line of code or a link to add.

Embeddable Tweets Make Your Content Permanent

Now, more than ever, you'll need to think before you tweet. While people can still take a screenshot of your incriminating tweet (ahem, Kenneth Cole?) and post it to a website, now they have the option of embedding tweets as well. Deleting a tweet does not make the content of the tweet go away if it's been embedded in a website or blog. If your business has been posting tweets live without any vetting process, you may want to change your habits. Although a screenshot takes extra effort to create, an embedded tweet could now easily end up anywhere on the Web.
