Stuff that occurs to me

All of my 'how to' posts are tagged here. The most popular posts are about blocking and private accounts on Twitter, also the science communication jobs list. None of the science or medical information I might post to this blog should be taken as medical advice (I'm not medically trained).

Think of this blog as a sort of nursery for my half-baked ideas hence 'stuff that occurs to me'.

Trying out the Twitter embed tweet option

Came across this page from the Twitter development pages: Embedded Tweets

It says that the easiest way to create a bit of code to embed a tweet is to click on the Embed link in the tweet...
I can't see, when I look at a tweet's individual page, any mention of an embed link as they show in the example so I wonder what I'd have to do to make it appear..

At the bottom of the page there are two bits of code and this is one of them - it might embed a tweet, it might not, let's see


  1. Think the reason you can't see the embed link is because you don't have the latest version of Twitter yet. Log out and you shld be able to see the link - that works for me!

Comment policy: I enthusiastically welcome corrections and I entertain polite disagreement ;) Because of the nature of this blog it attracts a LOT - 5 a day at the moment - of spam comments (I write about spam practices,misleading marketing and unevidenced quackery) and so I'm more likely to post a pasted version of your comment, removing any hyperlinks.

Comments written in ALL CAPS LOCK will be deleted and I won't publish any pro-homeopathy comments, that ship has sailed I'm afraid (it's nonsense).
