Twitter introduces embeddable tweet-stream tool

Twitter today announced the launch of a real-time tool that allows Web site operators to embed interactive Twitter timelines on their Web pages.

“Today we’re bringing Twitter and the Web closer together by launching new real-time tools for Web site developers,” Twitter developer advocate Sylvain Carle wrote in a blog post today. “With our new embedded timelines, you can place any public timeline on your Web site, connecting your readers with the Tweets that you and others create on Twitter.”

The way the tool works is that it lets users embed a stream of tweets to Web pages, rather than just single tweets or collections of tweets. What users select to embed is customizable. Within the stream, photos and media are expandable and people can follow, reply, retweet, and favorite from inside the “tweet box.” The tool is just a line of HTML code, rather than a clunky plug-in.
