Checking: Can you see Twitter posts on DU automatically? [View all]

DU automatically displays the content at Twitter when someone posts a link to a Twitter post. However, not everyone can see that Twitter content in DU posts that include a Twitter link. I'm curious about what percentage of DUers can or cannot see the actual content, rather than just a link to Twitter.

Sometimes they are displayed and sometimes I have to click the link. The poll doesn't allow for that LAS14 Aug 2022 #28
