How to embed a tweet from twitter in a post

Postby admin » Mon Jul 10, 2017 12:46 am

First get the link from the twitter post. You can get the link by clicking on the little dropdown at the upper right of the Twitter post.

Once you see the link, just mouse over it, right click, and copy it to your computer's clipboard (you won't see anything when you do this but it will be stored in memory)

Now go to your new VandyMania post and click into the message text field where you want the twitter post to be shown. Right click and click "paste" to paste the twitter address in.
