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.
