Embed twitter posts?
« on: July 03, 2017, 03:56:09 am »
Hello, we have had our forum running since December 2007, and are hoping to find a way to embed twitter posts into our forum posts. Simply pasting the twitter link into the forum post allows us to link to it, but won't embed it. Thanks.

I have looked into this. Unfortunately they make it harder to automatic embed videos. It would require a script to fetch data from twitter then save it. Verus youtube I am able to auto the content based on the url without doing an extra fetch request.
