Discord lets you embed links from third-party websites such as YouTube, Reddit, and X (formerly Twitter). But, lately, you may have noticed that X posts aka tweets shared on Discord don’t appear as embeds. Instead, they sometimes only show up as links without any preview. So, if you’re facing this issue and are looking for a solution, keep reading as we go over methods that can fix the tweets not embedding issue on Discord.

The first method requires you to make minor adjustments to the copied Tweet URL before sharing it on Discord. This solution comes from the FixTweet project on GitHub. It makes embedding Tweets, images, videos, polls, quotes, and other media from Twitter possible. Here is how you can use it.

  2. Tap on the settings icon at the top right corner.

  2. Here, turn on the toggle for Show embeds and preview website links posted into chat.

Enable Embed and Preview on Desktop

  1. Open Discord and click on the Settings icon from the bottom.
  2. In Settings, navigate to the Text & Images tab under “App Settings”.
  3. Enable the Show embed and preview website links pasted into chat toggle.

Once enabled, go back to the chat to verify if embeds and previews are visible to you.

Method 3: Clear Cache and Update the App

If the aforementioned ways did not work for you, you should try out some general troubleshooting tips. These should help fix any other bugs or glitches with the Discord app that might be preventing the app from embedding links from X/Twitter. This should include the following things.

  • Clear app cache
  • Update the app to the latest version

Performing these actions should get rid of any minor bugs or issues that might be interfering with embedded links.

This sums up all the working methods that you can use to fix the issue of embeds not working for tweets aka X posts. The issue has been quite frustrating for users since the changes made by X and Discord. Understandably, the platform wants to drive more users towards its platform to view said tweets. Hope this guide helped you see Twitter embeds in Discord once again.
