iOS and Android users’ latest twitter update comes packaged with a new feature: users can now embed tweets within tweets.

For users that want to reference a previous tweet, dredge up old online grudges or tweetfights (don’t laugh, you might need it), it’s now possible to embed the old tweet within a new tweet, just copy and paste the link to an older tweet into a new one; the link will automatically populate into an embed, and it shows up as such instead of just a link.


Unfortunately, this currently only works on mobile. When you look at the tweet on the web, the link, not the embed, appears.

It’s a small upgrade but it’s definitely smarter and cleaner packaging.
