As a crude way of rendering tweets in our content on Android app, we use Android Webview along with our text (HTML with twitter markup), and manually injected Twitter widgets script at the end of each such Webview.
This seemed to work file until today. We confirmed that a rollout of new script had started today (14th September, 2017). Because of this, whenever we would open a page on the app, the script seems to call the URL
data://platform.twitter.com/widgets/twitter_cookies.html?namespace=twttr%3Acookies&origin=null every single time.
It looks like this is being done for some kind of user tracking, but this unexpected behaviour has our Webview redirecting all our users to browsers with this URL in address bar.
Wondering what would the Twitter devs would suggest to resolve this.
