Today we’re launching a new tool that makes it easy to embed interactive timelines of Tweets on any website. 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. These new embeddable timelines enable publishers, writers, developers, and any Twitter user to drop a rich, interactive piece of Twitter into their websites.
When you browse websites that have embedded a Twitter timeline, you can now interact with it in the same way you do on twitter.com. Expand Tweets to see photos, media, and more. Start a conversation from the Tweet box, follow users that you discover, and reply to, retweet, or favorite Tweets directly from the page.
We’ve added a timeline for @twitter here on our blog, in the sidebar to the right. Go ahead and try it, or take a look at some other great examples of embedded timelines:
Learn how to embed timelines of Tweets on your own website by reading our Developer Blog.
