Embedded Tweets bring your pick of content from Twitter into your website articles. An embedded Tweet includes photos, video and cards media created for display on Twitter, and can even stream live video from Periscope. All aspects of Twitter’s display requirements are handled for you by using our tools; author attribution, Tweet actions, hashtags, mentions, and other key components of the Twitter experience.
