Fix Twitter embedding

Can we fix Twitter auto-embedding on this site, please? It makes posting Twitter links impossible.

I looked into this a bit, and bare links like this:

Code:
https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/820764134857969666
get auto-converted into HTML code like this:

Code:
<div style="display: none;" id="ame_noshow_post_1484521830_1">
        <a rel="nofollow" href="https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/820764134857969666" title="Twitter" target="_blank">Twitter</a>
</div>
<div style="display: inline;" id="ame_doshow_post_1484521830_1">
<div id="tweet_ame_1484521830_1_820764134857969666"></div>
********>(function(jQ){jQ.ajax({url:"https://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/oembed.json?id=820764134857969666",dataType:"jsonp",async:true,success:function(data){jQ("#tweet_ame_1484521830_1_820764134857969666").html(data.html)}});})(jQuery);*********>
</div>
It's obviously not working because of the word filter auto-conversion of text into asterisks: ********. I believe the converted text is "script" and "/script" (with angle brackets).

I doubt this is fixable without unconditionally allowing script tags (or a lot of effort, which I think is obvious you guys don't want to put in for this site). "tweet_ame" seems to indicate that this auto-embedding is being done by a module for Automatic Media Embedder.

Can you just disable the Twitter embedding function, so that we can paste bare Twitter links without the forum completely mangling them?

Re: Fix Twitter embedding

Yes please! Either make it work like it should, or kill the twitter embedding code that exists in here entirely. What it does now is complete garbage.

Re: Fix Twitter embedding

Agreed, embedding of widely popular sites like Twitter should be a no brainer.

Re: Fix Twitter embedding

Hi Everyone,

So I just talked to tech and unfortunately we are not going to be able to support embedding twitter links.

To enable HTML on VBulletin we had to disable scripts and this is what is causing Twitter embedding to not work.

Re: Fix Twitter embedding

So how about being able to just post raw links without the link getting all garbled with a bunch of asterisks?

Re: Fix Twitter embedding

Oh okay, I guess it was delayed. It didn't show up after I posted it initially.

Re: Fix Twitter embedding

Whelp. Credit where it's due. You guys fixed something for us.

The one caveat (for users) to be aware of is that I believe both of these auto-embeds require loading of additional JavaScript, but when posting a quick reply, the page scripts have already finished loading. So when your reply is posted, you yourself won't be able to see the embed properly until you refresh the page.

Re: Fix Twitter embedding

Twitter embedding works, which is great, but whenever someone embeds a tweet it doesn't show up in my browser. How can I fix that?

Firefox on my laptop and Brave on my phone. They do show up on Safari on my laptop, but that browser is much less secure than Firefox.

I just installed Brave.
You're right. In this thread, the instagram embeds look just fine, but the twitter embeds are invisible. Seems like something that could be fixed with a tweak. Let's hope they look into it.

Re: Fix Twitter embedding

If I quote a post with an embedded tweet, I can copy the URL and paste it into another tab to see the original tweet, but obviously that is a pain.
