Why Embed a Tweet?
There are many reasons you might want to embed a Tweet:
- This is a photo of me speaking at a business networking meeting. I could use this to market my speaking or to promote the meeting.
- I have seen people embed a Twitter post on an error page for their website. This is very effective if the site is down and it is a Tweet about the problem. The comments and replies get added as well so the issue can be followed by visitors instead of everyone contacting the support team.
- Show the popularity of a service or product
- Embed a Vine video
- Share a Twitter conversation relevant to your business
- Share a Twitter testimonial or review
