You can now include tweets in messages using the new [tweet] dBCode. There is documentation for the [tweet] dBCode in the dBCode help, but I repeat it here. You may have to do a hard reload of your browser before this will work. That's Control + Reload in Chrone, I don't know about the other browsers.

You can add tweets to your messages using the [tweet] dBCode. Every tweet on Twitter has a little down arrow in the upper right hand corner. Click on the arrow and select "Copy link to Tweet". Now paste it into your [tweet] dBCode so that it looks like this:

[tweet=https://twitter.com/Oprah/status/1149543001569427461]

The full URL is not required. You only really need the ID. For example this would work just as well:

[tweet=1149543001569427461]

These would both produce a tweet that looks like this:

By default tweets are left justified, but they can be centered using the 'center' option. Separate it from the URL or ID with a comma. It doesn't matter which comes first:

[tweet=1149543001569427461,center]

Your tweet should now look like this:

By default tweets are light, but they can be made dark using the 'dark' option. Separate it from the other parameters with a comma, it doesn't matter which comes first:

[tweet=1149543001569427461,center,dark]

Your tweet should now look like this:

You may have to do a hard reload before tweets will start working for you. That's Control + Reload in Chrome, I don't know about other browers.

Edge android
Went to privacy settings and cleared cache. Works.

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

I haven't tried Firefox yet, but is your browser in Privacy Mode? If so, try turning it off.
