Twitter Oneboxing in chatrooms appears to be broken at the time of posting. Pasting a Twitter link in chat does not change the chat message to a onebox of the tweet in question.

    Surely it's a feature and not a bug. – user302202 May 16 at 13:12

    @VoteDukakis If it was a feature, they'd have removed the swirl you get when posting a tweet as it attempts to onebox the tweet as well. – Nzall May 16 at 13:16

    Oops! I jinxed it. :/ – Shadow The Curly Braced Wizard May 16 at 14:21
  • Related: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/308166/… (Judging by the dev response there, I'm afraid this one won't be fixed any time soon either.) – Shadow The Curly Braced Wizard May 16 at 14:22

    @ShadowWizard Well, the last comment on that was a year ago by now. Teams seems to have left beta (or at least seems mature enough that they're charging for it) by now. – Nzall May 16 at 21:01

    @ShadowWizard well consider this, what use does SE have to onebox Amazon links? not much. what use does SE have to onebox Twitter links? well considering in some rooms there is a feed where we get updates of planned shutdowns from their twitter feed, they have a bit more use for it than amazon – Memor-X May 21 at 2:27
  • @Memor-X nah, not reason enough to bring the bug to the front. Still hundreds of bugs before it, and as always more important things to spend the dev team time on. (Namely Teams, SO for Business etc, the things that bring them the money.) As always, I'm hoping I'm wrong and the bug will be somehow fixed anyway, but judge for yourself... see the tons of bugs reported here, and how many of them are fixed. – Shadow The Curly Braced Wizard May 21 at 6:03

    @ShadowWizard Checking the Meta posts marked as bugs, it seems like they tend to get put higher priority through upvotes. This post is 5 days old and already has at least 22 upvotes, and that can rise as more people find the bug and upvote it. – Nzall May 21 at 14:33
