    If you are posting tweets, we are using the twitter api to display them in twitter like format. All you have to do is post the link to the tweet's status page. For example:
    Code:
    https://twitter.com/fishsports/status/365144453108875264

    Will show like this:


    To get the status page URL, all you have to do is click on 1) the Details link, 2) the Expand link, or 3) the time inside a tweet.

    Only thing is you can only post five tweets in that format in a single post.

    This is NOT a mandatory option. It's just a lot easier to read when they are posted this way and they allow users to fully use the twitter options such as retweet, follow, favorite, etc.

    Don't post the CODE tags .. I used those so it wouldn't convert the URL. All you have to do is post the URL.

    Did you click the code menu option or something? All you have to do is paste it as a regular URL and then it'll change on it's own.
