Hey, how does the tweet embedding syntax work?

Edit - updated thread topic title to reflect issue that black pearl doesn't work with the tweet tags

The code is

Code: Select all

[tweet]the Twitter link[/tweet]

The link is the full http link minus any add-ons.

When in doubt, use the quote button on a successful embed.

So, thisisn't working (in black pearl, or the current name for it).

It works for me in Black Pearl. There are about a thousand things that don't work in Black Pearl, but I'm not sure it's the culprit on this one.

Is the problem posting embedded tweets or viewing them?
