BB code for Tweeter
Requesting a BB code that would format posts from social media

Twitter seems to be a common source of information for orbinauts, from Elon Musk / SpaceX to various political subjects.

We keep using the "quote" BB code to format tweets, but I think it'd be nice if we could just post a link to the Tweet, Twitter feed or for that matter any other social media posts that may contain information.

This already works with YouTube and other videos - just posting a link to a video will automatically create a player in the post. I'd like the same done with Twitter.

Given the size of vBulleting hacking community, I'm sure hacks already exist for it...

Here's an example of a Tweet from Elon Musk that contains text and video:

Puts the Fun in Dysfunctional
It's definitely possible. I can't say for sure whether we'll look to implement this, but I'll escalate it to the rest of the forum staff for a discussion on the various elements.

It doesn't work properly when you quick reply, but if you reload the page once posting the JS will kick in and it'll embed the tweet.
