How can you show media in your general twitter feed?


Previously, when a youtube video was posted it showed the preview/player in the tweet (as in tweet #2 in the image). Now, it only shows the link, unless you click the media feed.

How can you default tweeting links on YouTube to showing the player?


Most (if not all) YouTube pages have player cards specified. I’ve just tried Tweeting out a random YouTube video, and a player card shows (as you’ve got in example 2 in your screenshot). It looks like the card in the first example is also now showing up in your timeline. This could have just been a temporary glitch. YouTube’s integration is on their side / built into their site, so there’s nothing we can do other than honour the player card tags included in their pages.
