twitter embedding not working? (resolved)

Not seeing any tweets embedding today, and this time I'm pretty sure it's not just me leaving a tracking blocker on as I have seen at least one other person mention it. I am not sure if it's affecting everyone or just some people.

They just leave empty space in the post like when a tweet gets deleted or you otherwise put a twitter link in to a tweet that doesn't exist.

example tweet:

and yes I definitely made sure the tracking protection thing that did this to me last time was off. Firefox 63.0 in windows 10.

    It's not affecting everyone, at least, I see the tweet just fine on desktop and mobile Chrome. I think I maybe had this issue briefly on mobile this morning? It's also fine now though.

    are these not working for anyone else on firefox mobile?

    would ad block interfere in any way? that’s the only thing i am using other than just a vanilla firefox install

    e: whitelisting forums.penny-arcade.com didn’t seem to make a difference

    Firefox's tracking protection breaks embedded twitter posts because they have tracking stuff in them, I presume.

    I'm having this problem again. Chrome on a Galaxy s9.

    I'm also having the exact same problem with the exact same browser on a Galaxy s8.

    Twitter embeds stopped working for me all of the sudden. Just see the link.

    Firefox Quantum 67.0 (64 bit). Tried killing all content blocking and add-ons/extensions and they're still not loading.

    Seems to be working now. I had upgraded to 67.0.1 after that post, but that didn't fix it. Started working in the last hour or so.

    Mine stopped working a few days ago. Chrome 76, Windows 10.

    Edit: And now it works. Complaining really does work.

    Mine stopped working a few days ago too, so like, there's no fix other than posting here?

    Here's hoping that works.

    I'm not seeing twitter embeds on Firefox on my desktop, but I'm seeing it on my iPhone's Safari. Refreshing a page I see the twitter link real quick that would be the embed itself but then nothing, not even a link or some blank space it would occupy.

    if you're using Firefox, click the information/shield/padlock area on the left side of the address bar and see if there's a button that says "turn off blocking for this site" and if it does, click that to add a tracking blocking exception for forums.penny-arcade.com. Then reload and see if tweets embed again. Twitter embeds are full of tracking thingies that send twitter information if you load them, so they're blocked by firefox's strict-level tracking protection option which may have been turned on by default at some point recently. If that doesn't fix it I dunno what the problem is.

    Fixed it, it wasn't Firefox, it was the DuckDuckGo privacy essentials blocking it. Same sort of thing Firefox has but I guess DDG is more strict.
