Any Hints on Embedding a Tweet Storm?

Post by Matthew G. Saroff » Thu Jan 31, 2019 12:47 pm

I generally just embed every even numbered post, which shows its predecessor, as follows:

Code: Select all

But this is a PITA.

I know how to embed individual tweets, I was if there were a way to embed a whole tweet storm, where someone posts multiple tweets as a chained sequence.

I read that as posts to Twitter. But your crystal ball may be better than mine.

I guess it's only going to be doable if that string of linked tweets has a unique URL that is different to the one for a single tweet. You'd probably need to provide that link so someone can work out how to embed it.
