Tried all that, doesn't work
I get the same thing. When I click the actual link address at the top, I get, "sorry that page does not exist".

When clicking the vid itself, I get a little square frowny face icon.

What I have to do to make it work, is to right click the name and open in a new tab. Ie: the name of the twitter page. "deep state exposed".

It then opens that twit page and I can scroll down to find that particular tweet. At that point the vids will play for me.

The link at the very top is a direct link to that specific tweet, but they never work.

Tried all that, doesn't work - a simple subject in connection with the link would at least give folks an idea if they even wanted to click the link. Come to that, I just ignore all links now to any twatter posts. It's up to the person posting the link to give us a little help if they want us to see what they think we would like to see.
Try a different browser? You may have a popup blocker messing with it?

For me clicking the link is a dead end BUT the link is necessary to post the tweet here.

Clicking the bluebird works. Also, right click the blue bird and "copy the link" does too, but you have to paste it in a browser.

Yep, just checked and it worked for me. Opened the linked tweet and then the video worked.

It just seems so dumb that the actual link won't work. I've tried searching for why twitshit links never work, but so far have not been able to find an explanation for it.

I get no video. No square frowny face. No info about the link at all. I simply get a link like

https://twitter.com/statuses/1227757873737977857 with the little birdie before the "https://" and it's a birdie that will NOT be copied for a post like this.

If I paste that link in the search box on the twitter "SORRY" page I get another "SORRY" page. ALL other twitter connection advice and tips here and maybe elsewhere across GIM II have failed me. Personally I think the problem is in the URL/link itself.

OK! I did type in on the "SORRY" page search box the link code (122...) and the page got me to a place I could type in the member name of whoever so I went with "deep state exposed" as example from your post and I got the "deep state exposed" page with videos etc.. Too much work!

At that point, would the videos play for ya?
....and yea, they make it difficult.

For what it's worth, here is the link I get when clicking the little blue bird.

htps://twitter.com/DeepStateExpose/status/1227757873737977857
You have to add a "t" to the https part, because the forum software changes it to an embedded link. When it does that, it no longer works.


the following is the posted linked that gives me the "sorry" page.
https://twitter.com/statuses/1227757873737977857

The difference is that the name of the twitshit account is in the first url.
....and that the forum software does not see that url as a twitshit link, and then try to embed it.

Would be nice to at least give a hint of what to search for, all I get on those twatter links is a worthless page like this....

Sorry, that page doesn’t exist!
Why not try a search to find something else?

And there is no way to know what the subject is even about. Sorry man, but I do not belong to that club.
#MeToo! Even when Twitter worked a month ago, I was unhappy with just posting a link. That says "Click me", just because I posted the link. A simple screenshot would be much better. Now, Twitter is dead to me. RIP.

That little bluebird only pops up for less than a second and then it's gone.
I think it's just a conspiracy twatter is doing to get folks to join. Just a simple search term and I'd probably be able to bypass the block as I'm not gonna disable my adblocker just for some twatter link. Not gonna join twatter either.
