#59142 reopened enhancement

X/Twitter posts cannot be embedded

When a link to a Tweet/X post is copied in the Twitter/X app (iPhone), it is the address that is copied, not the address. When this is inserted in a WordPress post, the post is not embedded, like a post.

Users of are now being forwarded to the Twitter website recently. The functionality for sharing and viewing content via URLs like "" is available, but it has not yet been completely implemented. This redirection, which links the domain to Twitter's services, might be a part of a larger branding or domain plan. It is unknown if Twitter intends to incorporate the full functionality of sharing and viewing posts under this domain in the future. The most accurate and up-to-date information about this scenario would be found by keeping a watch on official announcements from Twitter or because online developments are dynamic.

I'm going to reopen this for visibility during the 6.4 release cycle. There might not be anything to action for now but let's keep an eye on it.

Right now it still cannot be embedded, but due to redirect from X to Twitter nothing needs to be done yet. We are in 6 days before Beta 1, so, I am moving this ticket to the next milestone.

Noting there is also an issue in the Gutenberg repo on GitHub for the Twitter Embed Block:

As a workaround, until X embed URLs are supported in the oEmbed API, the Gutenberg Embed block will fall back to the Twitter provider when embedding X URLs (PR reference).
