    IS this in website? From bot?
    If in website, do you have ad blockers that may be blocking youtube?

    I don't shorten the link and I'm not using any ad blocker at all. The links work on facebook just not Twitter, other links work on Twitter just not YouTube links

    tweet appeared in my stream as the above text (no image preview).
    I went to another page, came back and the preview was showing.
