Perhaps I'm showing my age, but I don't know how to post tweets.

Can somebody show me how to do this?

There’s a twitter button (blue bird logo) above the message box where you type. The tweet /tweet tag will appear in brackets. Between the tags, paste the link to the tweet you want to post.

For example

[Tweet ]https://mobile.twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/869858333477523458?lang=en[ /tweet]

A couple things to add to Writ's post:

1. You can add media=1 to the [tweet] tag to make the tweet show any images/gifs/etc attached to the tweet. So you'd do something like [tweet media=1]url[/tweet]

2. For some reason, tweets won't show up when you click "Preview" to preview a post you are writing. I'm not sure why. I'm trying to fix that for the next update, whenever that will be.

While you're at it, how possible would it be to add the ability to embed Instagram posts (i.e. Instagram BBC: Invalid instagram link provided)? Not a high-priority feature obviously, but it would be cool to have.

(And now I'm curious if you have a computer science background)

Yes, a little academic but mostly my own projects and a short stint in corporate tech. I'm was too mathematically illiterate to major in CS lol Sad

I'll see about the Instagram dealio. Shouldn't be a problem.
