Automatic oEmbeds are a nice touch

I just noticed this commit today: “Adding instagram, twitter, and imgur story embeds

I guess, since Newsblur is powerful enough to display these rich embeds, why not add this magic?! I’ve already noticed the twitter widget code makes embedded tweets much more readable. Keep up the good work! I think tumblr has oEmbeds too, and the feeds they provide are particularly bare bones. That could really jazz things up.

Thanks! I completely forgot these things are called oembeds. Blogged and shipped. I’m not sure what tumbles embeds are but if you have an example I’d like to see it.
