Alternative Twitter Embeds

Project URL: https://alternative-twitter-embeds.glitch.me/

This project lets you embed tweets on your site without needing to use Twitter’s data-collecting and privacy-invading scripts. And it helps significantly improve your site’s performance.

More details on my blog (this project started as a WordPress plugin).

This is quite neat! The only thing I would recommend is for the project to proxy images and videos from Twitter, but other than that I’d consider using this.

Good call, I’ll look into that. Thank you!

@RiversideRocks I added the proxy for images and other media. Thanks again for the suggestion!

I still have to add this to the WordPress plugin version.

One thing I find nice that’s also nice about glitch is that emojis are used to indicate likes, retweets, and links. I should really do this more in my own projects!
