You can now include tweets in messages using the new [tweet] dBCode. There is documentation for the [tweet] dBCode in the dBCode help, but I repeat it here. You may have to do a hard reload of your browser before this will work. That's Control + Reload in Chrone, I don't know about the other browsers.
You can add tweets to your messages using the [tweet] dBCode. Every tweet on Twitter has a little down arrow in the upper right hand corner. Click on the arrow and select "Copy link to Tweet". Now paste it into your [tweet] dBCode so that it looks like this:
[tweet=https://twitter.com/Oprah/status/1149543001569427461]
The full URL is not required. You only really need the ID. For example this would work just as well:
[tweet=1149543001569427461]
These would both produce a tweet that looks like this:
By default tweets are left justified, but they can be centered using the 'center' option. Separate it from the URL or ID with a comma. It doesn't matter which comes first:
[tweet=1149543001569427461,center]
Your tweet should now look like this:
By default tweets are light, but they can be made dark using the 'dark' option. Separate it from the other parameters with a comma, it doesn't matter which comes first:
[tweet=1149543001569427461,center,dark]
Your tweet should now look like this:
Edited by Admin, : Add comment about hard reload.

You may have to do a hard reload before tweets will start working for you. That's Control + Reload in Chrome, I don't know about other browers.
