Following changes that Twitter (also known as X) made to their platform on June 30, 2023, "Embedded Timeline" Twitter widgets have been broken. The widget displays the message "Nothing to see here - yet" and, and has a "View on Twitter" button that directs site visitors to log into Twitter to view the tweets. Even if a visitor is already logged into Twitter, the embedded widget is still broken. The widgets that appeared on publish.twitter.com worked for a couple of months, but now display a "Not found" error.
For some accounts such as @Princeton and @Princetonian, the embedded timeline may show posts from the past few years, in a random order.
Embedded Tweet widgets that display a single post are not affected. However, the ability to create new embeds for individual posts is also broken on the Twitter Publish site.
This directly impacts the Twitter Widget layout block that is available on the Site Builder platform.
X (Twitter) has not responded to this issue and has given no indication that a fix is forthcoming.
Workaround: Remove the Twitter Widget layout block from your website. For individual posts, with publish.twitter.com not working, you may find success with a third-party embed generator like Iframely.
