Awesome! If people use this, I won't have to go to twitter or remain in the dark about what they've posted.

I'm guessing it's because X/Twitter's API accessibility keeps changing, but embedding doesn't work currently.

It's definitely possible for the Twitter / X embed to stop working, because they keep changing their API, but as you can see, it still works...

If it doesn't show, it shows a "colonia" sprouting up near Houston Texas with a population of between 40 and 75k people, mostly illegal immigrants.

Their website by the way, the equivalent of "Para español, presione 1, For English, press 2."

No, just usual, ordinary and common. Most of the idiots in this country don't even understand what's wrong about it.

Okay, that was weird. I gave it a thumbs up, intending to look at it, but after the thumbs up showed up, the twitter/X picture/video vanished.
