Twitter has announced through their blog several updates to the embedded tweet capability. Last year, Twitter began allowing users to embed a tweet onto a website, often used in blog posts and news stories to better share specific tweets with readers. Today, Twitter has released several udpates to the service to make embedded tweets even better.
First, the update allows Embedded Tweets to display photos, videos, article summaries and other content shared in a Tweet, just like you see on Twitter.com. You can also view retweet and favorite counts to better gauge the effectiveness of your tweet.
