    New Twitter Post Embed BBCode

    You can now embed one or more Twitter posts directly into your Forum post/thread.



    Here is the format:

    HTML Code:
    [twitter]https://twitter.com/TrueFactsStated/status/906169198874947585[/twitter]
    Where https://twitter.com/TrueFactsStated/status/906169198874947585 is the direct URL to the post --- which can easily be obtained by clicking on the Down Caret at the top right corner of the post and then select "Embed Tweet."

    You will get a chunk of code like this:

    HTML Code:
    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Is it ok to hope that Trump's properties are devastated by Irma while sparing the rest of Florida? Asking for everyone I know.</p>&mdash; Claude Taylor (@TrueFactsStated) <a href="https://twitter.com/TrueFactsStated/status/906169198874947585">September 8, 2017</a></blockquote>
    <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
    Just grab the URL as highlighted above. If there is more than one, it will always be the one with the format:

    HTML Code:
    https://twitter.com/{username}/status/{Twitter Post ID}
    You can put more than one embed in a forum post.

    Please note that the embed might not show up immediately after you submit the post---You will have to reload the page after the posting process completes. This has to do with the Javascript loading at the appropriate time. Users browsing the thread will not have this problem.
