I suspect it has something to do with X changing all their links to "X" and not "Twitter" Nittersing May 18 #4

That the tweet in question has been deleted. On my desktop computer, nothing has changed. I can still see tweets if I click on them.

I saw a post about this yesterday... it may have to do with DU site settings.

And I doubt it has to do with individual tweets, since I get the same message every single time.

Maybe people who want us to see tweets can do a screen shot instead of a link?

but I rarely check out DU on my phone. On my phone you can also see the X replies which quit working on my PC. Is there a setting I'm not aware of.
Using Edge Windows 10

update

I tried DU on Chrome and X works OK. I don't have an account on X so obviously the replies don't show up. Is there something about Edge? It was working fine until a few weeks ago.

I don't have it now and didn't understand what the fix was. Anybody know what it was and how to do it ?
