From the WordPress Support Site:
Using the Media Explorer, you can now insert tweets and YouTube videos without ever leaving WordPress.
This tool lets you search Twitter and YouTube from inside the “Insert Media” window in your WordPress.com Dashboard, which makes it easy to find and embed relevant Tweets and videos in your posts and pages.
To open the Media Explorer, click the “Add Media” media button.

I was alerted to the new WordPress feature because I follow Robin Good on Scoop.it. He puts a lot of time and effort into curating information on the web, and one of the topics he covers is content curation itself.
If that seems like the snake that eats itself, take a look at his content curation page at MasterNewMedia – well worth a look.
And if you are not using Scoop.it, then I recommend it because it is easy to use and there is really no downside to it.
My Scoop is at Visual Intelligence, if you are looking for people to follow.
