Twitter tests embedded sites feature

TwitterTwitter is testing a new feature that lets users connect tweets to longer-form stories. The new addition attempts to add context to short 140-character tweets.

The new feature will add a list of sites where the tweet was embedded. Sites will appear beneath tweets under the heading “embedded on these websites.” The additional information includes website names, headlines, as well as links.

As of press time, Twitter has not released a comment on the new feature. But it has been confirmed that it is currently available in limited release.

The embedded sites feature will be an integral addition to the marketing platform of the site. Not to mention, it will give users real-time access to relevant sources about the tweet without the links being counted under 140-character limit.
