Possible to show "peek" for links to twitter?

Apologize if this issue has already been addressed. I noticed that links to twitter do not give a peek of what they are about. This is unlike links to other platforms/sites. Is this due to restrictions by twitter or is it just a deficiency of the software that this forum runs?

This screenshot shows what I mean:

It was enabled before but when there were too many Twitter links, it slowed down the page from loading

If its possible I would like to see a small "show" button on top of each Twitter link, which when pressed would load the tweet inside the current page.
So, by default all tweets should not be loaded, but there should be an option so that we could load individual tweets if needed

Of course that depends on the forum software and almost certainly it would require custom code written. Its up to the Webmaster if he wants to invest that much time on this feature

For me it sometimes expands the link and sometimes it does not. Like it works, then I reload the page and it doesn't, then I reload and it does again. It is probably a script with a timer and if it takes too long to expand the post it quits.

I have noticed I see the link for a second and then the preview pops up. It use to be be pretty instantaneous. It'll probably be something that clears up in time.

It works for me. I see the Twitter previews too. I'm on mobile Android chrome and also works on Desktop Windows 10 chrome.
