WordPress introduced oEmbed support for tweets in its 3.4 release, but recent changes to Twitter’s API requires updates to core. On May 1, Twitter will be removing the XML response format from the single Tweet oEmbed endpoint. Twitter engineer Niall Kennedy opened a ticket to change the oEmbed URL for single tweets from api.twitter.com to publish.twitter.com.
The update was included in this week’s WordPress 4.5 Beta 4 release. To see it in action you can take the latest beta for a test drive or check out the embedded moment and timeline links below.
