Just replaced the Twitter Blockquotes plugin I was using with Twitter Embed — both by kovshenin, not coincidentally. I’m a little sad to say goodbye to the blockquotes plugin, because in certain ways I prefer what it does — make a quoted tweet part of the flow and style of the environment you’re seeing it in. (Needless to say I can’t bear the Blackbird Pie look).

Still, I couldn’t resist the interaction possibilities in the official oembed implementation; apparently follow/retweet/reply in place is enough to win my heart.

The changeover was seamless, mostly because the first plugin was designed to fake oembed before Twitter actually had it. When that’s incorporated into core, I’ll be able to lose both, with no stray shortcodes haunting old posts. Hooray for things that just work.
