update twitter embed test

Just grabbing the URL, by clicking on timestamp in a tweet, and copying it into a post as plain text, NOT a hyperline, works to embed a single tweet,  how to here, example below:

Will this work in free version?

To all: This blog is a work in progress

Dear readers,

I created this blog as a teaching tool — for myself and my Boston University Journalism 304 class in multimedia storytelling.

It’s most definitely not ready for prime time.

But someday … perhaps after I finish grading my students’ blogs.  Which are much, much better than mine.

Bear with me, Andrea
