Twitter says, starting today, you’ll see “related headlines” appearing underneath tweets that have been embedded on websites.
There’s some confusion about whether these headlines will appear on websites or not. Some people, like Jay Rosen, hate the idea of embedding links to other people’s websites. Journalists aren’t going to like this.
Raise your hand if this will make it less likely that you will embed tweets in your posts and articles. http://t.co/dOtmSdqghD [raises hand]

But Twitter’s Mark S. Luckie says this only applies to tweets on Twitter, not on your website.
@zseward @bsabatinelli @jayrosen_nyu The links won't show up on your site, only below the tweet on Twitter

Who is right? We should be able to test this by seeing if related headlines show up in this post.
