CSS for embedded Tweets

An embedded Tweet appears on your page as a <blockquote> with the cited text of a Tweet; this markup is later interpreted by Twitter for Websites code to render a full embedded Tweet. The <blockquote> HTML is available in all rendering environments, including RSS feeds and email updates.

An embedded Tweet’s fallback markup will inherit the CSS rules already applied to <blockquote><p>, and <a>HTML elements on your webpage.

Below is some basic CSS to style an embedded Tweet’s <blockquote> content in a way that more closely resembles its fully-rendered form.
