Embed tweet in Journal by NAkos Embed tweet in Journal by NAkos

What is this?

Twitter have a not well known but good to use feature: embedding tweets on websites.
You can use that by going to the selected tweet's own page (by clicking on its date) and clicking on "more" button.

When it embeded properly it gives you more functionality (reply, fav, retweet, follow). deviantART currently kills the script tag that makes this possible.

Why is it important?

Journals are written about lot of things, and there are lot of cases when a tweet can give plus information to given topic. Making tweets look good helps everyone, and it have a really nice "works with every layout" design.


I see two good ways for this.

  1. Journals have the twitter script in header so when a twitter embed code placed in tweets render well.

  2. Using already existing da:embed tag like this: <da:embed profile="twitter" id="tweet_id_goes_here" > this would be perfect as the tag represents embedding media. This time it would be a tweet.
(thanks for =deviant-garde for comments that led me to come up with methods of embedding)

DD info: Thank you for the DD :) Here is the comment of `GillianIvy about why she suggested it as a DD: [link]

^Though articulate, that one user sure does write long and detailed complaints for why this piece doesn't deserve a dd, forever alone much. I can't help but :lol: :facepalm: smh, then :lol: again. :censored:
Apparently not EVERYONE! knows about skimming, nor cross posting.
When browsing through da (or any other VISUALLY DRIVEN websites,) I usually go by the thumbnail of the deviation rather than browse through the entire torrent of somewhat related materials to just get what I really wanted to find initially in my head.
If it really catches my eye, I'd (most likely) go to all means possible to learn more about the post, i.e. clicking on the embedded (thumbnail) tweet of the page, then following it through to the page where it was originally located. Voila! A.I.D.A achieved!
Now the same goes for cross posting.
If you are running a business with your art, then you would certainly promote it right? Instead of just posting it individually per site, if you are running multiple sites but your main platform is da, then why not opt for lessened clicks //I know YOU know wth I'm talking about! The hold left click mouse, drag to highlight (Ctrl+A's (if proof read x4x4x4 - A LOT of work I know)), Ctrl+C's, Alt+Tab's, Ctrl+V's, hold mouse, left click on submit, wait to load--shebang. Not all of us have all the time in the world to sit hours if not days in front of a monitor | screen. We also have other venues of the business and real life to tend to.
Stop beating around the bush and just blast the darn plant, hit (you just don't know if) multiple birds with one stone (oh so now you get the idea). //Pardon me for the fist-to-face conveyance of the message albeit being graphic (if you like that visualization in your mind) of some sort.
I'm :stfu: now.

I for one approved of this suggested feature.
^Short and concise.

This was the suggesters point to, that is why it got suggested as turned out. :)

Congrats on the daily deviation! Deviant art is currently a bit iffy with other forms of social media I've found (however it is trying to interact better) so this is a useful idea, and I would like to see it implemented in future :) DeviantArt plz!

dA have lot of twitter accounts for example. This was one thing I kept in mind while I done this. :)

what a Daily Deviation is*

The hate here is completely unnecessary .. funny how it's all coming from people who don't really understand what a Daily Deviation, what the dA Related category is, and what this deviation is even about .. don't make a complaint before knowing what you're complaining about! :no:

Anyway, congrats on your Daily Deviation! It's a good suggestion. :)

Thank you :) I got used to this kind of stuff, this is not the first time I see stuff like this. If is remember this is why $namenotrequired had articles about "deviantART related category as DD material?" before.
