Twitter Launches Embedded Interactive Tweet Boxes

[Techtaffy Newsdesk]

Twitter has launched a new tool that makes it easy to embed interactive timelines of tweets on any website. The embeddable timelines enable Twitter users to drop an interactive piece of Twitter into their websites.

Embeddable timelines make it easy to syndicate any public Twitter timeline to your website with one line of code. Just like timelines on twitter.com, embeddable timelines are interactive and enable your visitors to reply, Retweet, and favorite Tweets directly from your pages. Users can expand Tweets to see Cards inline, as well as Retweet and favorite counts. An integrated Tweet box encourages users to respond or start new conversations, and the option to auto-expand media brings photos front and center.

These new timeline tools are built specifically for the web, mobile web, and touch devices.

When you browse websites that have embedded a Twitter timeline, you can now interact with it in the same way you do on Twitter. You can expand tweets to see photos, or start a conversation from the Tweet box, follow users that you discover, and reply to, retweet, or favorite Tweets directly from the page.

Brian Ellin (Product Manager, Twitter): Whether it’s an author’s Tweets alongside their blog, a hashtag about an event like #DNC2012, or a list of competitors at the US Open, Tweets add a live, real-time dimension to articles, news reports, and the web at large.
