Twitter shows reply w/o original tweet

Discussion in 'Twitter' started by orius, Apr 23, 2018.

    Twitter just showed me a tweet made by x:

    Replying to @y
    I agree​

    It didn't show me the original tweet y had made.

    I'm following x and not following y, but still it doesn't make much sense to show the reply without the original tweet (agree on what?).

    Does it make sense to you?

    In such a case, is there a simple way to quickly find the original tweet?

    The first tweet was deleted, that doesn't delete all the replies so they stay and look strangely orphaned.

    No, it wasn't. I went to y's tweets, and I was able to find it there. The problem is that I had to locate it "manually".

    Can't find it now, I guess I'm following too many accounts :-(
    I'll post a screenshot next time I see that (already seen it more than once).
    Thanks for your help!

    Here's an example:

    And another one:

    example2.jpg

    In both cases, I can see the original tweets, I just need to go to the relevant account and iterate through their recent tweets.

    Could you show them side by side - a link to your tweet with the missing content, and a link to the content when accessed via their feed.

    Here's what I see on my feed:

    And here's what it looks when you follow the link (https://twitter.com/HindiRinny/status/989246226427273216):

    That looks pretty normal, assuming that when you click your tweet it expands to show the whole thing. I found it and had a look, everything looked ok.
