Recently I was featured by the official Battlefield channel and their tweet looked like this:
I need help from a dev recreating the feature where if you hover over the video on Twitter it displays “watch now on Twitch” and allows me to link to my twitch page.
This is a payed opportunity.
email me here: firstname.lastname@example.org
As far as I know, the last link in a Tweet is embedded in the Tweet. This is how embeds appear from a Twitch Clip and Twitter knows how to get the embed because of
<meta> tags in the HTML of the link:
<meta name="twitter:card" content="player">
<meta name="twitter:site" content="@twitch">
<meta name="twitter:image" content="https://clips-media-assets.twitch.tv/151570779-preview.jpg">
<meta name="twitter:player" content="https://clips.twitch.tv/embed?clip=DifferentDeafKuduCopyThis">
<meta name="twitter:player:width" content="640">
<meta name="twitter:player:height" content="360">
<meta name="twitter:image:partner_badge:src" content="https://clips-media-assets.twitch.tv/img/twitch-white-rgb.png"/>
There’s also “watch_now” in the “call_to_actions” section in the Twitter API (
tweetData.extended_entities.media.additional_media_info.call_to_actions.watch_now.url which I presume is how the embed’s overlay gets the “
Watch now at twitch.tv” text’s href.
All you have to do on Twitter is to post a link to a Clip and it’ll be magically embedded in the Tweet.
Hey ALCA! I appreciate your help in this but I am still confused how to write the tweet so it takes advantage of the feature. All of my video tweets when I link to clips do not have that feature at all. Is there a special way I need to link to clips for this to function?
