How To Embed a Tweet Within A Tweet

  • Doubletwitter

Back in June Twitter started allowing users to embed a tweet within a tweet within iOS and Android. The feature allows users to view a full tweet within another tweet, however this was only viewable on mobile devices until now.

Prior to the change, embedded tweets would show up as links at the end of a Twitter post when viewed on a computer screen. Now users see a minimized version of the embedded tweet within the outer tweet.

Here’s how a tweet within a tweet looks.


What’s interesting is that Twitter had tested the feature on mobile first, before releasing it to the web based application. Twitter commented, saying “With the majority of our users accessing Twitter from a mobile device, it’s important for us to be able to test on mobile,” Twitter said in a blog post last year. “Over time, you’ll continue to see us test and introduce new features first on mobile.”
