Twitter has launched an official WordPress plugin. How does this plugin make your life easy as a user of WordPress? It combines many features which were made available to you through a third party app. For example it has the ability to embed a tweet, and it embeds videos uploaded directly to Twitter.
But, I was under the impression that WordPress already embeds tweets. Yes, that is right. So what is the difference of having this additional plugin? There is a difference; with this plugin you can now not only embed tweets but also customize them to match with the rest of the blog theme (design).
