I will look into this but I think Elon Musk did something with Twitter (X now :roll:) and sharing with unregistered users. It may have affected how Tweets are embedded here.

I confirmed they did indeed break the embedding. There is a workaround:

When you paste in the link to the tweet, change "x.com" to "twitter.com" and they work (most of the time :lol:).

There is a more elegant fix that involves a change to the board software, but I will not have time to do anything with that for the next couple of weeks because I'm about to leave for a vacation! :) Please try the above workaround until then.

I have noticed using VPN while on the site can sometimes create disruptions too.
