Why can't I see pictures when someone posts something from Twitter?

It just started happening this morning. Whenever I click on a post with a tweet in it I can see the border of the tweet, but I can't see a picture. Thanks in advance for any help.

Supreme Court won't stop grand jury from getting Trump's tax returns

The decision marks a decisive defeat in Trump's prolonged legal battle to keep his tax records out of the hands of investigators.

The U.S. Supreme Court declined Monday to block a New York grand jury from getting President Donald Trump's personal and corporate tax returns, a decisive defeat in his prolonged legal battle to keep his tax records out of the hands of investigators.

The ruling does not mean the returns will become public any time soon, and they might never be publicly released. Under state law, materials turned over to a grand jury must be kept secret. But Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance can now require Trump's accountants to turn over the records that the president has steadfastly refused to surrender to prosecutors or Congress.

“The work continues,” Vance said in response to the Supreme Court order.

Vance is seeking tax returns covering eight years for a grand jury investigation of hush money payments and other financial transactions. The investigation began after it was disclosed that former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen paid Stormy Daniels $130,000 to keep quiet about her claim that she had an affair with Trump, an allegation the former president has denied.

Just a random thought I had this morning about the senate trial.

A couple of weeks ago I was watching Rachel Maddow and she said (and her guest agreed) it takes 2/3 of the senators present, not 2/3 of the senate to convict. Maybe DUers with republican senators could call their offices and remind them that not being present for the vote is an option.
