Embedded tweet deleted from original account?

embeddedtweet

#1

Hi everyone,

I’m building a page where several tweets will be embedded. I don’t think these tweets will get deleted by their authors anytime soon. But I wonder what would happen if they do. Will my page still be able to fetch the tweet?

Thank you!

No, if a Tweet is deleted it cannot be displayed in an embedded Tweet widget (or anywhere else, per our Developer Policy).

You won’t be able to render an embedded Tweet for deleted content, however if you use our OEmbed API you will get a simple text representation of the Tweet — just as you would if you’d simply quoted the text in an article. You can use this text as a fallback in the event of a Tweet getting deleted or if your content gets displayed in non-JavaScript environments like RSS feeds.
