Spotify link preview not working or showing on Twitter, workaround inside
Spotify and Twitter are among the most widely used applications for audio streaming and microblogging services, respectively.
Additionally, Spotify users like to share their favorite playlists and songs on Twitter and other social media platforms. However, an issue troubled Spotify users when sharing links on Twitter.
According to several reports, Spotify link preview is not working or not showing up on Twitter for many.
The actual cause of the problem is unclear, but the number of user reports clearly indicates that the problem is widespread.
It certainly annoys Spotify users as they cannot feature their favorite songs on the microblogging platform.
sharing spotify links was one of my twitter personality traits pls collect your shit and bring back the old link
I just noticed that Twitter is no longer integrating Spotify links and it looks so big and ugly. It’s like when they stopped integrating Soundcloud links.
Additionally, there has been no comment on this from Twitter or Spotify support, which further adds to the dilemma for users.
However, one of the affected users found a possible workaround for this issue. It seems to remove the part after and include the ‘?’ from the Spotify link, the preview works on Twitter.
For example, modify the link https://open.spotify.com/track/4AHNi316rl3KI3hKIsdxZe?si=cm-zWEEfQsiw1Vnf9r7rgQ&dl_branch=1 To https://open.spotify.com/track/4AHNi316rl3KI3hKIsdxZe allows preview on the microblogging platform.
This further indicates that the issue may be with Spotify links and not linked to Twitter as changing the links allows them to be previewed.
However, this remains based on our speculation, as the two service providers have so far provided no clarity on this matter.
Hopefully Spotify and Twitter clears up the issue or better yet fixes it for good so that users can share Spotify links without any issues.
That said, we’ll continue to monitor this for further development and report back when more details become available.
