How do you link a tweet??  I can’t seem to figure it out.

Thanks.

Just copy the web address of the tweet and paste. Easy breezy.

Ok, I’ve done that.  When you hit preview, do you see the tweet??  It always looks messed up in the preview.

ha!  The preview can’t show it I guess.  Thanks, IPA.

Why can you sometimes see the embedded tweets and other times, most of the time, they just come up as text?

I have a suggestion. First, admin runs some sort of analytics to see - of all the users that have posted links to tweets - who has the highest percentage of those links that are currently showing up as "Invalid Tweet ID" and then for like the top 5 or 10 users in that category they get a bot that follows them around and every time they post a link to a tweet the bot takes a screenshot and then posts the screenshot right behind them.
