On Thursday, Sept. 26, Twitter announced, “We’ve put the photo front and center, with a bigger and bold visual focus on the media.”
This is one of several big changes that Twitter is rolling out. Since images invoke greater interaction (aka click-throughs), start by getting in the habit of including images in your Tweets. Then, embed those Tweets into an article wherever relevant and meaningful. Embedding a Tweet into your WP post is effortless as WordPress explains: First locate the tweet you want to post. Then click the timestamp. You’ll be taken to the page for that individual tweet. Copy the URL in the address bar. Next, in your blog’s post editor, paste the URL on a line by itself (no HTML necessary).
Readers can interact with them just as they can in Twitter. Click the reply icon to join the conversation, retweet to share and favorite them to show appreciation. And as always, you can click the follow button to get the Tweets in your home timeline.
Here’s an example:
