Twitter auto-embed fails if twitter username contains Emoji icon

Every time we add a Twitter link to our articles, the embedded (auto-embed) tweets stop working after a while. this happens only, when the username contains a emoji icon. All other tweets works fine. Adding the embed code from twitter works also fine (with emoji in username)

Hi @dijkenwater,

Welcome to Trac!

Can you provide some more details to help others reproduce the issue? I tried, but have been unable to reproduce in my testing. I have tried embedding tweets where usernames contain emojis in the block editor using the Twitter embed block, the Classic Editor block, and the Classic Editor.

You mentioned that they work and then stop after a while. Have you been able to determine what stops them from working? Also, when they do not work, is there any browser level ad blocker or tracking script prevention running?

Hi @desrosj ,

i add for example 10 Links with tweets to an article. After Publishing everything works fine. And after a while the embed tweets with emojis in the usernames are displayed as a link in the article and not as a emebeded tweet.

Here is an update. If the username contains Special Characters like "𝑔𝒾𝓃𝒢 πŸ’‹β€" there is also a problem embedding the tweet.
