!Friendica Support is there still a working way to embed Twitter/Nitter links in #Friendica so there is a preview shown? Do I need to change some setting or use some special bb code?

Friendica Support reshared this.

The link preview works here. I just tried it. The preview is fetched via the node's Twitter connector.
@Steffen K9 🐰 do you need to use some BBCode to get a preview?
Like I said...

> The preview is fetched via the node's Twitter connector.

You should look for error messages related to Twitter in your Friendica log. Maybe your nodes's connector app has been restricted by Twitter or has some other issue.
@utzer @Steffen K9 🐰 For me it looks exactly like this. If I take the nitter link instead, it works.
@utzer I disabled the twitter addon and then enabled it again, now it works again with the preview.
@Montag that did the trick. m(
@Montag thanks again.

@Steffen K9 🐰 funny thing, this also got the links to embed some pictures and show the text. 🤷‍♂️🤦
There are two addons from @Tobias Diekershoff. One for Nitter and another for invidious. They only need to be adapted a little.
They replace the original links with those of the other instances. This then also affects all incoming and generated Twitter and Youtube links.
@Tobias this is not part of the Friendica Addon Repo, is it?
@Tobias two weeks ago or so we actually thought to make a feature request for a funcion like this.
