GetGlue Content Comes to Expanded TweetsBy: Josh Wolford - February 26, 2013
Social TV and movie-watching app GetGlue has joined the growing lists of apps and sites that have enabled Twitter Cards, meaning that GetGlue content will show up in Twitter’s Expanded Tweets.
“Now, when you share and see GetGlue links in Tweets, you can get an enhanced visual experience. When users click ‘expand’ on a Tweet with a link to GetGlue, the shared content, such as a show description or movie information, is seen directly within the Tweet,” says GetGlue in a blog post.
The Expanded Tweets not only feature a short description of the media in question, but also contain a thumbnail as well as a link to GetGlue’s Twitter account.
Clicking on the Expanded Tweets takes you to the show or movie’s official GetGlue page, where you can browse the current conversation.
GetGlue joins apps like Foursquare and sites like CNN and The New York Times in enabling Expanded Tweets content. Back in December, Instagram famously disabled its Twitter Cards integration, forcing users to click links and visit the Instagram site to view photos cross-posted to Twitter. Just a few days after that, Pinterest added support for Twitter Cards.
