      Description

      NOTE: This bug report is for Confluence Server. Using Confluence Cloud? See the corresponding bug report.

      There appears to have been a change on the Twitter end of the connection so embedding Twitter feeds in the Widget Connector no longer works. When embedding a Twitter URL and clicking preview nothing is displayed, even though the instances had their whitelists disabled.

      This behaviour has been reproduced in Confluence v4.3.7, v5.1.3 and also on the EAC. When changing the embedded URL for a YouTube video the content was embedded as expected, which suggests this is Twitter specific.

      Workaround

      1. Enable HTML Macros in Confluence
      2. Create a Twitter widget by entering your Twitter URL to https://publish.twitter.com/#
      3. Copy the code for the widget into a HTML macro on your page
