Does SMF have a function/addon to natively embed tweets?

When I try using the "embed" function from twitter, it's in HTML rather than BB code.

Code: [Select]
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>.<a href="https://twitter.com/Siovan9">@Siovan9</a> yes, it is illegal and could result in a $402 stunting ticket under the Traffic Safety Act. It is also incredibly unsafe.</p>&mdash; Calgary Police (@CalgaryPolice) <a href="https://twitter.com/CalgaryPolice/statuses/407634496440508416">December 2, 2013</a></blockquote>

If the sea was vodka, and I was a duck.
I would swim to the bottom, and drink my way up.
But the sea isn't vodka, and I'm not a duck.
So give me the vodka, and stfu.
If you're having forum problems, I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but your post ain't one.

I just searched a couple pages of SMF support.
The short answer is "no", not natively.
It can be done using the [html][/html] tags, but only admins can use the html tags for security reasons.

The only other way is with code customizations, which I believe has been collectively decided a "no go".

Which is the better choice for posterity.
