Twitter 101 sort of.
am getting a lot of PMs about how to post Tweets here. This is how I do it. (there may be easier ways) and how to read posted tweets on an Android.

To embed a twitter post on CSNBBS, from your PC
1. go to Twitter
2. select the down carat on the upper right of the tweet you want to share
3. click on "embed tweet"
4. select (highlight) all of the text inside the "what Would You Like To Embed" box
5. right click and select "copy"
5. in your board post, paste the copied text inside of twitter and /twitter, each inside of brackets [ ]
such that bracket twitter]your link here[/twitter close bracket

LOL If I actually use the actual syntax it thinks it's a tweet. Do a "reply" to one with the post and you will see what I mean.


To read a Twitter post on your Android from Tapatalk your phone, make sure Twitter is installed.
press and hold the blue twitter link text, and press "twitter" at the menu prompt (twitter share copy select all) above the link.

Steps 2-4 can be a little simpler by just clicking on the tweet and copy/paste the URL from the address bar. Then paste as bit_9 shows with those Twitter brackets.

FWIW the tweet shows up on Tapatalk even if you don't use brackets.
