Till now Twitter offered widget to embed any public timeline on your website, but the downside of these timelines is visitors on your site can’t interact with the tweets inside this box, today Twitter has launched new tools to make these embedded timelines interactive which allows bloggers, developers and other Twitter users to create their own timelines to place on websites.

If you place embed timeline on your website visitors can now access it as if they were on Twitter.com. Any visitor already signed into Twitter can reply, retweet or favorite your tweets straight from your website without visiting Twitter on web browser. Since these timelines auto expand photo, media and more by default they appear in center of timeline. You can expand tweets to see count of  received retweets and favorites.

Twitter currently lets you create embed timeline from any account, a user’s favorites,  Twitter lists, for any search query or hash tag.
