I would like to embed a single tweet into a Slide. Twitter provides embed code like this:
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">New! Turn your phone into a remote control with a text message (no sign-in needed) <a href="https://t.co/znYS4dc28f">pic.twitter.com/znYS4dc28f</a></p>— Slides (@slides) <a href="https://twitter.com/slides/status/867388192722493445?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">May 24, 2017</a></blockquote> <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
If I try to link just the Twitter URL - that provides an error in Slides. Is there any work-around to this?
I'd like to feature a single Tweet.

We still don't support the Twitter embed code since we disallow all custom script tags.
For the time being my recommended workaround is to use https://twitframe.com/ to create an iframe embed code for your tweet. That embed code can then be inserted into Slides using an iframe content block.
I've got some ideas for how we can enable support for script based embed codes that I'm going to explore as well. Hopefully that will let us support the standard Twitter embed code and those of other whitelisted vendors.
The Fiddle site does work if you just google for it but it is not easy understanding how to use it to change the tweet url so that it can be accepted into the Google Slide. Would be great to do this.

That's an interesting workaround that will work for more than just tweets! Cool. I try it out at https://slides.com/dhimmel/penn-oa-panel#/slides-tweet.
Not perfect but better than nothing!
Why is we cannot embedded a twit in slides? I should not be that difficult and is am important source for slides. Also the link provided in the support answer is broken
