WordPress 3.4 has been released with new features like Theme Previewer and Customizer, better Caption, header and background image coming from media gallery and many more performance improvements. WordPress team keeps coming with new features and enhancements in every upgrade. Apart from the new features mentioned earlier, 3.4 is also having capability to embed Twitter Status (also known as Tweets) inside the post area.
To embed a tweet inside a post, you only need to paste the Tweet URL which you can get by clicking the ‘details’ link just below a tweet on the timeline. Here is an example showing embedded tweet from my Twitter account.

To get the above status inside the post, I just paste the below URL in the edit post window.
Be default, the embedded tweet will take max-width of the installed theme template. If you want to customize the width and height of the embedded tweet, you can do that from following location,
WordPress Dashboard ==> Settings Menu ==> Media sub-menu ==> Embed section
Here you can enter the width and height that you want for embedded tweets. This same width and height will be applicable for all embeds done inside the WordPress using oEmbed method. For example, if you are using WordPress 2.9 or later, you can paste the URL of YouTube of Vimeo video and that will appears as IFRAME embedded video inside the post. The set width and height in Embed section will be applicable for those embeds as well.
