Issue viewing embedded tweets

Recommended Posts

peterms    3,958

I find that while I can see embedded tweets on my tablet, the same thing on my PC shows as a hyperlink to the tweet, with no picture, and when I click the hyperlink, the link and any other content of the message disappears from the post, with nothing else opening up.  So it seems to be an issue about how my PC deals with it - any suggestions as to what it might be?  I don't get this happening when I view tweets in Twitter or Tweetdeck on my PC - it's only when looking at embedded tweets on this site.

Browser type/version? (such as Firefox or Chrome) and version of OS?

Have you got some sort of extension thingummy enabled in the browser, I wonder?

People still use ghostery? Hopefully people will realise what's paying for the "free" service and turn it off.

Sigh.

I like it.  It has a charming picture of a ghost, in a pretty shade of blue.

It's the ghost of your former privacy :)

But they anonymise the data they sell on, no?

Ha ha ha ha ha. Good one.

No idea. I recognise that a "free" internet costs a little privacy. It doesn't concern me. I'll pay to use the sites which I use that have the facility.

Blocking things from all sites just means that you are punishing the small independent sites disproportionately. They (we) are the ones for whom ad revenue is all there is. When you choose to let something like Ghostery take the revenue instead, the internet becomes a little less varied.
