About twitter embedding

Hi,
Some users (you know who they are) love to do a post including many twits, videos and all, for example copy+paste many videos in a row with the highlights. This make the page loading very slow and very difficult to handle from a mobile phone, sometimes making it crash and reload.

Imho, 80% of these posts are spamming (and very annoying for some people) but even if not I think something could be done while keeping all these posts with so many twitter embedding.
Maybe make obligatory to hide the content of the post with a spoiler or any other similar tag, allowing about one or 2 twit in the same post to be visible, hiding the rest for those who may care. This has been implemented in other forums which were experimenting the same issue and helped inmensely to increase the functionality.

People also should have a better use of twitter, gif and video embedding. But since they probably won’t, we may discuss about handling this to keep this site friendly to mobile phones.

Re: About twitter embedding

BUMP.
Can Mods please not ignore it this time around?

Please Make obligatory to use Spoiler tags to chains of 10-20 tweets or so or at least put a limit in the number of tweets per post. Other forums made that mandatory. You can post like 3-4 tweets and then something like this:

Tweet 1
Tweet 2
Tweet 3
Continue... More... Etc
 

Tweet 4
Tweet 5
Tweet 6
Tweet 7


I raised this in the Andreescu-Bouchard thread. Bonk makes almost impossible to load the page with this post.

People let’s all help to make this place friendly to navigate
Thanks in advance.

Re: About twitter embedding

Posters who post endless amounts of embedded tweets and say nothing in every single results thread should be banned. Are they even real people?

Re: About twitter embedding

Does everything need a conference and a new rule?

Just advise posters to put a maximum of 5 or so tweets within one individual post (the rest in separate consecutive posts) to avoid pageload/bandwidth issues. Ideally the same should apply for large photographs too. Because systems try to load everything in one post all at once: if there are 20 tweets or pictures in one post then all 20 are activated.

And the poster's name is Bonk, let's not beat around the bush

Re: About twitter embedding

Plus we all know where to find those tweet/video/gif, they are not coming from some obscure source(s)

This is not rocket science.
