Cooperation Internet Archive and Twitter could greatly enhance the ability of records in social networks. Users not only can post tweets in his references to the MS-DOS-game, they are embedded in the entries so that they can be played directly on Twitter.

Embed the game in a tweet is very simple: just insert a link to it in your record. Then she transforms it into an interactive program card.
