Twitter released a new update for its app last Friday. With the update, you can now embed a formatted tweet within a tweet, not just the link. It will look like the image below. (Except with a better message, I’m sure.)
This view is only available on mobile devices, however. If you view the tweets through your computer, the embedded tweet will just look like a link.
To do this with your own tweets:
- Download the latest Twitter app update.
- Find the tweet you’d like to embed.
- Press the button with three dots on the lower right and select “copy link to tweet”.
- Paste the link in your new tweet.
Research has shown that tweets with images receive more clicks. This is a way to retweet and provide visual interest at the same time.
