Twitter launches 'Embedded Tweets' on Android and iOS

Twitter has rolled out a new update to make tweets appear more streamlined on iOS and Android smartphones. The new update allows users to embed tweets within new tweets.

To "embed" a tweet within your tweet, you will have to post the link of a tweet that you are referencing in your tweet itself. The functionality creates a new graphical presentation of the message you're referencing instead of an untidy URL. To view the tweet, you'll have to tap on it within the normal Twitter timeline, the "embeds" will show up as normal URLs.

For now, the functionality has been rolled out for Android and iOS only and is not available for desktop users yet. Twitter hasn't commented on what it's up to with the new embedding feature or when will it be launched on more platforms.

Let us know if you get the ability to view embedded tweets via your iOS or Android app.

Facebook and Twitter have recently launched tracking hubs and features dedicated to FIFA World Cup. New users who sign up on Twitter will be able to choose their team's flag as their profile image as well as access major timeline by looking for #worldcup. Twitter will also post the latest links to all of the teams' accounts and scoreboards for each game as well as custom timelines for each individual match for die-hard fans.
