Embedding tweets?
« Topic Start: June 11, 2020, 07:31:07 AM »
Is there a way to do this? I've seen it on a couple other message boards (see Football Future) and it looks good.

Possibility here?

It's possible but I am in no rush to do it.  Already regret enabling Youtube embedding, honestly.

it does make the 'what are you listening to now' thread much more enjoyable.

What's it used for other than sharing music?

I’m curious why you say this. Not arguing. Genuinely curious.

It brings ad trackers and other tracking scripts with it on any page load that contains an embedded YT video.

To clarify, it's on the user end, so anyone running adblockers or other privacy add-ons could control this, but that's a burden on visitors which I object to on principle.  If I disabled embedding this would be the "cleanest" website on the modern internet - mostly because it's so dated :lol: but also because I refuse to run ads.

B+ according to my DuckDuckGo extension, but only because it has "Unknown Privacy Practices." Zero trackers. :clap:

Oh, go for it! Stick some privacy practices up, like we sick a bunch of Iraq and Afghanistan experienced vets on any mofo that tries to place a tracker on this site, and we got folks with ins on brass knuckle suppliers.  Nobody has to know that's a description of Cope.

Gonna bump and ask again. Seems like tweets are how news is pushed now. Just a bunch of extra steps to post a tweet and then have to copy and paste the content below the link.

Yeah I hate Twitter but it is what it is nowadays. Every day we’re posting Tweet link videos of the prospects. It would really add to the Farm threads if it just embedded.
