Hi all,

I've spent a good amount of time correcting broken posts over the last little while when people have included tweets in their posts. To help save from more headaches around the forums I wanted to put out this short PSA.

Posting the simple link to the tweet will break a thread as the site is breaking when trying to automatically embed the contents of the tweet inline in the post. PLEASE DON'T SIMPLY POST TWEET LINKS IN YOUR POSTS

LUCKILY there is a right way to include tweets inline in your posts. 

  1. Go to https://publish.twitter.com
  2. On the site in #1 enter the link to the tweet you would normally paste right into the thread and submit
  3. Click on "Copy Code"
  4. In your post editor, click on the "Source Code" HTML editor button. It looks like "<>"
  5. Paste the copied code into your post where you want it to show up and click "Ok"

Here's an example embed:

We will let you know if/when the tweet embedding the easy way is fixed.
