Twitter shut down public access to the platform on June 30th, 2023, along with open graph data. This made me very sad because I share a lot of links to Twitter, and now they all look like this:

Thankfully, there’s an API for embedding tweets that’s still publicly accessible, which we can use to reconstruct the open graph data, so the tweets you share can look like this again:

To use it, simply replace with in the link to any Twitter post. Clicking on a link will still take you to the tweet.
