Ability to embed Tweets and Instagram posts

Many forums have the ability to embed tweets and posts from instagram. That doesn't seem to be possible on FT, unless I've missed it.

Not sure what the underlying technical and bandwidth requirements are, but this would be an interesting and welcome (imo) addition to FT.

As it is, many people are already linking (URL only) to tweets and instagram accounts, or trying (and failing) to post images from instagram (easy with twitter, although it's still sometimes nice to embed the whole tweet and not just a pic).

As this seems to be more of an issue about the technical side and capabilities of FlyerTalk and vBulletin 3, we will move it to the Technical Support and Feedback forum.

And nice to see it works on mobile too! ^

Question is: How do you do it?

Just use the web link widget (globe and paperclip) at the top of the post menu.

It will end up looking like (without the extra spaces used for visibility):

It did not work for me, but I'll try again late.

I was also unable to hotlink a Tweet either within text.

I was thinking this wouldn't work because the preview post just shows the link.
If you just ignore the preview though, the final post comes out perfectly!
