Twitter’s New Embed Feature Test: A Tweet within a Tweet

Twitter IPO Raises $1.82 Billion With Value Topping Facebook

Twitter and it’s ever changing updates!

This time around Twitter’s new ’embed’ test feature that allows a user to put another tweet within their own tweet in the form of a link, and tweet the whole thing. It’s just a test feature that hasn’t been officially rolled out yet.

The cool part is you still have 140 characters to work with in addition to your link so your followers will have to open the tweet-link you have embedded in order to see it.

Twitter’s new embed test feature will allow you to add your opinion in 140 characters before the tweet you want to repost. It is also different from ‘quoting’ a tweet as the quote plus the tweet itself had  to still come up to 140 characters.

We’ll just have to see if they make this feature official but it seems like one that will be received well.
