Let's Build: With Tailwind CSS - Tweet

Kicking off my new Tailwind CSS Let's Build series I decided to start with a component and what better component than a tweet on Twitter.

Follow along in the build to see how I'll use a combination of Tailwind CSS, Twitter UI icons, and some trial and error to create a very similar experience that you see on

I'll leverage CodePen and the version of Tailwind CSS. I'll eventually install and configure Tailwind CSS locally instead of always leveraging a CDN but for quick prototypes and builds such as this one it makes a lot of sense to use.
