Twitter keeps changing as time goes by. Whether that is good or not is usually a very subjective thing amongst the user base.
One of the things that has frustrated me when writing blog posts referencing Twitter, was the tedious process of displaying a referenced tweet inside of a blog post. Normally, I would have to link to it as well as grab a screen shot of the tweet and display the image or use a WordPress plugin like Blackbird Pie.
Well, Twitter has come up with a way for you to now embed tweets in a blog post (or any other kind of web page where you can insert code).
