I am the web content administrator over http://stthom.edu. We are currently in the process of working with the University IT department to get approval to use the Official Twitter Embed Widget found here: https://twitter.com/about/resources/widgets …on various University Offices & Departments that have their own Twitter accounts.
From UST’s IT Department:
If no other “simpler” version of an embed script can be found that we would be comfortable loading on our own servers then we can discuss utilizing the official twitter script as you’ve suggested, but in the interest of due diligence we ask that you try and identify an embed script / method that 1) does not link to an external JS/script or 2) we can get permission to load the script on our servers AND the script is relatively simple enough that we can be assured it’s not going to cause problems on our system.
I hope I’ve posted this in the right place to get some clarity from someone at Twitter and if not, can someone direct me to the proper channel to get this answered?
