TO EMBED TWEETS HERE ON TRUTH ZONE...

heres what we have to do...

Get the tweet URL, for example
https://twitter.com/OfficialMOPAR/status/1116327803610386432

Make sure its the non mobile URL by the way. If the url has mobile.twitter.com at the beginning, cut the 'mobile' part out so its just twitter.com

Then go here and paste in the tweet URL that you want to embed...

publish.twitter.com/

It will give you html code for embedding the tweet. Copy that code. It will look something like this....
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">We love our MoPets! <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/NationalPetDay?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#NationalPetDay</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Mopar?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Mopar</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/ThisIsMopar?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#ThisIsMopar</a> <a href="https://t.co/qgy0bqDu6C">pic.twitter.com/qgy0bqDu6C</a></p>&mdash; MOPAR (@OfficialMOPAR) <a href="https://twitter.com/OfficialMOPAR/status/1116327803610386432?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">April 11, 2019</a></blockquote> <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Then when you have that code, you need to wrap it in BOTH code then source tags on either end, like this....

[ code ] [ source ] The twitter code [ / source ] [/code ]

Obviously, omit the spaces in the example above. I had to add spaces for this demo or else the tags would embed instead of showing.

Submit the post as per normal, the tweet should now be embedded in the post.

Simply posting a twitter URL here in the post reply box and submitting, will result in the URL not even showing.

So there are two options, see the post above to embed, or wrap the link to twitter in URL tags, like this, which will then show in the post as a simple link.

So this...
[url=https://twitter.com/http2wice/status/1116939964107771904]https://twitter.com/http2wice/status/1116939964107771904[/url]

Will give you a link like this in the post...

https://twitter.com/http2wice/status/1116939964107771904

And the info in post number one above this one, will actually embed the tweet in the post, like this....
 


Related thread with more info which led to this thread and the embedding working....

truth-zone.net/forum/faq-and-feedback-centre/72169-how-do-i-post-a-tweet.html

I started and pinned a new thread on this only so the method is right at the top in the first post, rather than members having to scroll through conversations to find how to embed tweets, but thanks to the OP and contributors of the other thread about this.
