    It's not just videos, it's regular tweets as well. And yes, all the damn time.

    Yeah, it happens all the time. Refreshing the page fixes it at least.

    sometimes the plugin just hangs and I have to get the link with the inspect element tool.

    politics threads that are full of tweets have that happen a lot.

    Good. Should disable the embedding of twitter shit altogether.

    A couple of embedded tweets is fine but when it's 5 or 6+ in a single post then it's a bit annoying.

    Disabling twitter embedding would destroy the Gamergate thread, and I think I speak for everyone here when I say nobody wants that.

    I don't see tweets at all because of my privacy settings on Firefox:

    No biggie, I just open the link in a new tab.
