Disable link clicks in twitter timeline Search Widget


#1

Within the twitter timeline widget (https://dev.twitter.com/web/embedded-timelines), is there a way to disable link clicks?

Are you asking if there is a way to remove all links from a Twitter embedded Timeline? No, you cannot remove links in a set of Tweets, and cannot disable the ability to click on the links to be taken to a destination.

Thanks @niall. Is there a way I can do this without using the timeline widget. Perhaps using something within the twitter api instead?

You could build your own timeline widget using the API, and not linkify (add <a> tags around) the http links, I suppose. Seems like a strange thing to want to do - of course a user could just copy/paste the links into their browser instead. Note that you should comply with our display requirements if you choose to build your own widget.
