Twitter just launched a new major redesinged version of Twitter that makes it even easier to stay close to everything that interests you with new. In addition, Twitter has also introduced new tools that bring Tweets to your website / blog(s), and new ways to share with our Tweet buttons.
“These great integrations are made possible by our new oEmbed API, which developers can start building with today,” Twitter said.
New Tweet and Follow Button
Twitter has given a visual refresh to the Tweet and Follow Buttons, and today Twitter added new ways to share with these buttons:
“The new #hashtag button tells your visitors there’s an interesting conversation happening on Twitter, and lets them join in with just one click. The @mention button encourages visitors to Tweet to your account, driving public conversation directly from your website. Get started and configure your own button experiences on our new Twitter Buttons website,” informs Twitter.
Embedding a Tweet
Twitter today, introduced “embeddable Tweets,” a new way to add any Tweet to your website just by copying and pasting a line of code. Just click the “Embed this Tweet” from any permalink page in the newly launched Twitter.
“Your website visitors will see a Tweet that focuses on the content by surfacing the conversation and media. Visitors can follow the author with a single-click, and reply, retweet, or favorite the Tweet without leaving the page,” revealed Twitter.
“On WordPress.com, you can embed Tweets directly into posts by simply copying the Tweet URL or using a shortcode. Once published, WordPress instantly turns that URL or shortcode into an embedded Tweet. Jetpack users will get it with their next update.”
Also, Twitter has made it possible to preview all “wp.me” links, including snippets of posts and photos, directly on Twitter.com.
Finally, “if you link your Twitter account on your Gravatar profile, WordPress.com now made it so it’s easy to follow you right from that page,” revealed Matt Mullenweg.
Posterous Spaces has also enabled embedded Tweets. People can easily add Tweets using their existing workflows: Posterous’ browser bookmarklet, email, the Posterous Web Editor, or their iPhone or Android Apps.
