There's a lot of people talking about leaving Twitter at the moment and/or locking/deleting posts. So, I'm going to try testing to see what happens if an embedded tweet on here is subsequently deleted.
I'm just tweeting this so I can embed it in a blog post and then delete the tweet and see what happens to the blog post. I'm a bit worried about what will happen if people start to leave Twitter and delete tweets/lock accounts so I thought I'd try to work it out.— Laura Vivanco (@DrLauraVivanco) October 31, 2022
I made the post go live. Here's what the page then looked like:
Then I deleted the tweet. I thought I'd leave this post up for a bit in case anyone's interested in the result, which is that the text that was in the original tweet remains even though the Twitter graphics are lost. I suspect that all images or quote tweets embedded in a deleted tweet will be lost, but this does reassure me that there won't just be blank spaces in the places on this blog where I've embedded tweets.
Yay! And thank you--yes, this is reassuring.ReplyDelete
