For now, the Internet Archive’s library is offering a good amount of games such as Metal Gear, Prince of Persia, Wolfenstein 3D; that can be shared and played within tweets. All you need to do is click on the game, copy the link, paste it in the tweet compose field and press send.

Most of these games can be played otherwise, but you may face problems while playing these because programs like DOSBox are not compatible with modern machines.
