It's that little button (light blue above) next to images, which is for embed links.

You get the embed link from twitter, them copy it into that thing. First time I've ever used it but it works well.

IF NGSW ends with an adoption, Textron rifle and MG will be the chosen option. SiG is out of the competition, and GD has the bullpup problem

I would assume that after so many years, CT is fully mature and it was just a matter of ergonomy improvement for the rifle part of the bidding

Absolutely. This was always Textrons contract to lose...

There was some small chance of that when their initial rifle debuted:

But with their much more refined current rifle, and their always superb LMG...short of there being something catastrophic with CT ammo itself (like being 6 MOA or prone to explosion) I think its a lock for textron. 

And good for them really, they've absolutely put the most effort into the program of anyone. Not to mention AAI's work dating back to SPIW and ACR.
