    Does this still work?

      Twitter seems to have changed something and the TWEET bb code no longer works. I attempted to use it in my post above and you see it is blank.

          The tweets in the first post are still working. The reason it doesn't work on your post is because when you pasted the tweet post id, it was formatted with color, font family and font size and left alignment. It should be pasted as plain text without any formatting.

            Oh, I should have realized. That's a relief. Thank you.

              This made me think to fix this and automatically remove the formatting. I'll post the code when I figured it out.

                Hey Glenn

                I've had this on my site for sometime and always thought you could only do the ID to render the tweet. I came here tonight and saw the original post said you can actually use the whole link as well, so I tried it.

                Using the ID works perfect on my board, but using the whole URL produces Twitter"> in the post after submitting.

                I'm making sure that the URL doesn't have the link format and it's just text.

                I'm sure it's something I'm doing. Any advice?

                  The sample tweets in the first post are using the whole tweet URL and it is working fine.

                  Can you post or PM a link to that post with tweet?

                I just installed this and I noticed that on Safari a Tweet will be displayed like this:

                  Can you check the Javascript console for errors.

                  Code:
                  TypeError: null is not an object (evaluating 'a.getAttribute')

                  Ok That's helpful. Does this only happen on Safari?

                I'm actually seeing that same Javascript error on this page 3 of this thread at post #31. The OP posted a tweet but she pasted the tweet ID as formatted text causing the tweet bbcode to fail parsing the tweet id. This causes the embedded tweet to display blank. In your case Fleiding it still displays the tweet text but without the CSS layout. The solution is when you copy the tweet URL or ID from twitter.com and paste it inside the [tweet] bbcode, don't use the keyboard shortcut for pasting (CTRL+V or equivalent) but instead right-click and choose the 'Paste as plain text' option to remove any copied formatting. Try this if this solution will also work for you Fleiding.
