The good people at Twitter announced last week that they now offer a tool to allow interactive timelines to be easily embedded to a Web site.  

These timelines are fully functional.  Users can interact with them the same way they do their own, personal timeline on Twitter.com.  

The really exciting aspect, and the one that has a number of real world applications, is the ability to customize each timeline to only show tweets relevant to your site, or even a single article.  For example, you could include your own Twitter account’s tweets and conversations in the timeline on your blog.  Or, include only tweets with a specific hashtag to a relevant article.  Be creative and these timelines could be a real asset.
