You are now able to embed external content from Twitter at PPM forums. Here's a sample:




And here's how it is done. You need to add the full URL of the tweet between the open and closure of the twitter tag, like in the sample below:

Code:
[twitter]https://twitter.com/thegunrun/status/1194793729111908353?s=21[/twitter]


The same trick can be done to embed videos from Reddit.

 



Code:
[reddit]https://www.reddit.com/r/commandandconquer/comments/dm28fw/remaster_update_and_first_gameplay_teaser/[/reddit]


Note, however, that Reddit embedder kinda sucks. It autoplays videos, doesn't allow users to maximize them, see the length of the video, among other things. It seems to be a problem on their end or something that I don't think I can control it, but if anyone can prove me wrong, please do it. And show me the solution, of course #Tongue

And enjoy these features. I hope it should be useful for someone... or at least to post those awful EA videos that Jim Vessella doesn't seem to share the YouTube link #Tongue.

WHOOO!

Nice to see new features! Smile
Twitter and Reddit are overrated #Tongue
Also does anyone else have to manually write size= and /size (or color) in brackets?

Does the Twitter embed really work? It seems it only gives a "-" where you can click on it.

It works... you need to wait a bit, since it is pure javascript.

Was waiting for 10min, nothing changed.

With "Edge", it works. Though i never use that thing.

I've only tested with normal Firefox here and it works fine. Both cases uses javascript hosted by their respective domains, so I don't really have much control over it. Also, they use external programs to make these javascripts codes awful to be read, so, I'm not really confident that an internal modified copy of it would work. In short, I don't think I can fix their bugs on my own.
