    •  Trying to replicate the front-pager (2+ / 0-)

      format, by copying the exact html used does not work. Inline blockquote styles that would result in that fp style being duplicated exactly are non-functional for us.

      I was obsessed with this awhile back. MB finally told me it was a special deal for the front pagers.

        Of course I haz all the perms.

        <div style="margin:14px auto; width:400px; font-size:12px;background-color: #eeeeee; border: 1px solid #999999;padding:5px;"><a href="https://twitter.com/#!/AndyCobb/status/326745313891196928"><img src="http:/ / a0.twimg.com/profile_images/422769864/Photo_9_normal .jpg" style="float:left;padding:0px;margin: 0px 5px 5px 0px; width:48px; height:48px;"><a>AP finally scooped the NY Post.<br><span style="color:#555555;font-style:italic;">— <a href="https://twitter.com/#!/AndyCobb/status/326745313891196928"> @AndyCobb </a> via web</span><div style="clear:both;"></div></div>

        Try me in helpdesk if that doesn't work.

          Actually lifting the code out of a night owls thread awhile back. I couldn't get it to work then.

          But, I now see your "evil twin" Zachary's comment below. So... ;)

          I had created a helpdesk topic on this awhile back, but closed it after MB had confirmed the special nature of this type of tweet embedding.

          I don't recall off hand how informative it would in fact be for your purposes, but I just wanted to let you know there was indeed one made by me regarding this issue.

            Sometimes they get lost in the crush.

            We are working on a new comment editor now, so I'll bring up the option of making something in this format accessible to y'all.

              It's only because the DK style is so damn SUPERIOR to the native Twitter embed style that many of us want it.

              The Twitter ones seem to add a lot of load time to pages, from what I can tell, as they have to go and pull a bunch of the extra functions/retweet counts and whatnot from Twitter itself via the scripts, I guess.

              Not so with DK version...lean, concise, and pretty.

              What more could you want in an embed? :)

      •  Let's give this a whirl (3+ / 0-)

        Interesting. You're correct, it gets eaten without the special sparkly magic.

        I'll see about making this accessible more generally.

        •  That would be absolutely SUPER (1+ / 0-)

          Thank you very much, Zachary.

          Yer my new best friend. :-)

          (Yes elfling, you are my best friend too. ;-) )
