The inspiration for this trick was the following Tweet from John Richardson, someone I follow on Twitter.
Why would you want to embed a Tweet rather than simply re-Tweet it?
Well, adding it to your blog gives you a point of reference and much more space to share your opinion or analysis of that particular Tweet, such as I'm doing here. It also gives you an instant graphic to make your own post stand out. And, it gives readers of your blog access to that Tweet and its link far into the future, while a re-Tweet gets lost in cyberspace within minutes, if not hours. Have you used this technique? Has it been effective?
