Twitter mobile users can now embed tweets inside tweets
Twitter gets meta.
Twitter‘s latest update might just explode the Internet.
To embed a tweet within a tweet, simply drop a link to the first tweet into the new one. When you post, the link will auto-populate as an embedded tweet. The result is much cleaner than a jumbled URL, and it frees you from having to manually retweet another user’s status.

Still, the new feature is pretty snazzy, and we’re hoping to see it on the Web soon.
