Initially, but even before it was deleted it wasn't showing up for me.

It's just an annoying little thing; depending on the browser/add-ons combo, if people post tweets here without using the tags, it just says "Loading tweet..." perpetually and nothing ever loads, and you have to click on the link to get it to load another tab.

And there's the added bonus that if someone doesn't use the tags and the tweet gets quoted, then even if it did show up in the initial post, all that shows up in the quote is the tweet address.

TL;DR: use them tags, baby.

Maybe that’s why YouTube videos don’t show up in Safari on my iPhone? There isn’t a YouTube tag though …

I see the youtube videos only when the url is “youtube.com”. They never show when it’s “youtu.be” or whatever the horsefeathers that link is.

That's the link for a video when you click the "share" button on YouTube. Those tend to work for me here, but when people just copy the address bar url, I often get an issue like the Twitter one.

Basically there's no one way that works across all the browsers/platforms, and it sucks.

It really does. When I go to check box scores on espn, almost every single time I'll click one game and get another game because it takes about 5 seconds after the page shows up for the games to sort properly. So Even if I click on the Cub box score, I'll get some other game.
