One of the things that I really love about #newTwitter is the inline display of media via oEmbed. In simple terms, #newTwitter displays media from some of the most common media providers inline in the tweet details. For instance, here’s how twitpic looks like.
As of now, #newTwitter supports 31 providers. Till now, that is. Enter Parrotfish. Parrotfish augments #newTwitter’s default providers to 165 sites, including WordPress, ESPN, Posterous, Tumblr amongst others. If this wasn’t good enough, Parrotfish also has Instapaper support, so you can mark it as Read Later and it will get added to your Instapaper’s Read It Later list.
Parrotfish is currently available as a Chrome Extension ( Chrome v4+) and is a must-have extension if you spend loads of time on twitter and is a worthy addition to some of the best Chrome extensions list.
