Embedded tweets no longer show up

Up until a couple days ago, embedded tweets started showing only as

"Link to Twitter."

Yes, I can click on the link and get to the tweet, but I can't see it unless I do.

If this is part of the ongoing maintenance, cool. If not, what can I do to fix it? I use Slimjet browser (slimmed down Chrome).

Thanks in advance!

1. None of them? Could it be that you've run into a few that didn't delete "mobile." ? nt

2. None of them

Now that you mention it, they are acting like the few mobile twitter links I've seen in the past.

But now they are all like that.

3. I just clicked on a thread with a tweet and it showed up for me

What browser are you using?

5. Sorry for the delayed response

I looked around and the most likely explanation is that you're running an ad blocker or some other content blocker which is preventing the tweets from appearing. If that's the case, try disabling the ad blocker on a page which should show an embedded tweet and see if the tweet shows up. If it does, that's your answer.

If you don't want to disable ad blocking entirely then there may be a way within your ad blocker to allow content from Twitter, which should make the tweets show up. The solution would be specific to your ad blocker though.

If you're not running an ad blocker, maybe the security settings in your browser are set to a level higher than default? Either way, it seems to be something going on in your browser that's causing this issue.

6. Quite all right!

It just tells me that you took the time to look into it.

It looks like I just cured the problem and it had nothing to do with ad-block. I have an anti-tracker (Bitdefender) that included twitter and it auto-updated 2 days ago. When I took social media off its list, tweets became visible again

So, this could be a possible solution to others who may have this issue.
