A couple of days ago, I was trying to embed a tweet to a blog post, but it was always failing to show the styles, and it was driving me crazy as the task was rather easy: generate the code to embed the tweet, paste it on the blog, and we are ready to go.

After fiddling around, I found the problem was that I was testing in incognito mode in Firefox, which has tracker protection, which was blocking the request to download the required script from Twitter. The solution is of course not using incognito mode or configure Firefox to make an exception.

Below a screenshot of the problem:

The Tweet was not properly shown because the tracker protection was blocking a call to Twitter
