I want users to be able to embed tweets in their posts. What's the easiest/best way to go about doing that?

That sounds like a great idea to enhance user social networking! So I googled it!

Looks like someone successfully done so here back in 2015.

That sure looks easy, however all it is enabling html within posts, allowing users to copy&paste source code a tweet to a topic post box on your site, and then your (or the css they supplied) custom css will display it however you want.

I haven't tried this, and not so much familiar with twitter, but if a user can copy & paste that source code form each tweet, everything that link says seems to be viable and as simple as copy&paste url or img codes too!

Post this idea, in extension request forum!

Forget everything I said above, there is already an extension (BETA, but it worked for me in 2minutes on 3.1.10!!!) here: viewtopic.php?f=456&t=2272431


All I did was activate the ext, copy & paste this https://twitter.com/NFL/status/746821547185344512 in post box, and post!


RESULT & s/s of it working:
