Jeremy Keith:

Apparently the display guideline requirements do apply to me. If I want to quote a tweet on my website, I’m supposed to use the embed code to make sure that people can favourite / retweet / follow, etc.

Fuck. That. Shit.

If I want to quote something from another URL, I will do it. I’ll use a blockquote element of course, but I will not be told what markup and JavaScript I must include on my site.

The faith that the web development community has in Twitter seems to be flying away rather quickly.
