    BBCode for tweets?

    Is there one, or can we have one? I've been snipping, posting to Imgur, and adding the link, but that doesn't allow you to follow the original, just view the graphic.

    Especially since Twitter provides direct links and direct embed code.

    I think Scott/Rob might have to install a widget and I have no clue if that's something vBulletin supports.

    No button for now. Just a code tag. Use the tweet ID between the tags. For example, from Scott's Twitter page:

    https://twitter.com/scottwww/status/783121035428192256

    Becomes:

    [tweet]783121035428192256[/tweet]



    Note, YMMV on possible changes or even discontinuation, as I am not really keen on how I am handling the underlying code.

    Thanks, RobRich. For now, at least, so much better than snip, Imgur, get code links, and paste.
