Tweets aren't embedding on the forum

It works for me. Does it reliably not work, or just didn't work once?

Yeah, tracking protection does that.

As the title suggests, tweets aren't embedding like they used to. Is it because a change in IPS or in Twitter APIs?

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play MTGA & watch anime at 720p...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee! The Cassette Deck!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

I don't work for Floatplane Media, so any Floatplane comments that I make are my own and may be incorrect or in conflict with the official view.

I finally figured out why. Third party privacy extensions seem to prevent proper embedding of tweets.

Is there any way to make it not do that while maintaing tracking protection?

There's nothing that I can do, because embedded tweets could be used by Twitter to track you (on this site there are safeguards to reveal very little information to Twitter, but they are not detectable by the browser, and the fact that you viewed the tweet is still tracked by Twitter so it would be blocked either way). There might be a whitelist in any particular tracking protection system, but I don't know.

While we're at it, I noticed they don't embed while I'm on phone. Is it a mobile limitation by any chance?


The ability to google properly is a skill of its own.
