This may have something to do with them 'banning' my account into a state where it demands a mobile phone number then crashes the browser.


Can you see this? It's appearing fine for me:

It's because you're using a Mozilla browser, probably. Twitter embeds aggravate the browser's default anti-tracking policy (since it introduces a third party tracker every time you do that). I've heard Chrome is pivoting that way too.

This understandably makes most of the boards a mysterious blank for me unless I go to some special effort to hunt down context for things people are reacting to, but I consider that a feature.

Hm. I'm on FF and the new anti-tracking stuff hasn't resulted in blank Twitter embeds for me.

I was on Vivaldi on desktop, and flitting between regular Firefox and Tor browser on mobile. I'm currently trying the Samsung browser which renders Twitter embeds as intended and also loads pages instantaneously compared to everything else, which I assume is because it's not even pretending to care about privacy concerns.

Not gonna lie lie but I thought it's been the Christmas banner for a few years now. As a bit. Is that not actually the case?

The other day I realized how much work must have gone into drawing all the lights on the title image and I just want to let you know whoever drew them I appreciate your efforts

I drew and animated em! Very happy with how it came out.

Lottel I don't know how to take that but I do leave them up until halfway through Jan typically as a bit, then swap it out for the regular banner.

I also wanted to say how awesome the banner is, and that your work is greatly appreciated!

It is amazing and I love it so I guess when I don't see the lights, my brain puts the lights in.

Or maybe my memory is finally bad enough when I see something familiar, it overwrites anything else in the meantime and I go "Yes. This is how it always Was."
