Web intents user profile being retired?


#1

Hi there.

I’ve noticed that embedded tweets on websites (generated using widgets.js) are no longer linking @usernames to a web intents’ pop-up like they used to (referred to as “Follow and Mini-Profile” intents at https://dev.twitter.com/docs/intents) and now just open the standard user profile in a new tab.

Is there a reason for this change? Will web intents or user profile intents be retired soon?

Thanks in advance.

Bumping this thread as I’d really like an answer please!

Also noticed that clicking on a user name in an intent popup now just loads the user’s full profile in the same (small) window instead of opening it in a new tab of the parent window. Very annoying.
