Closed Bug 1178559 Opened 5 years ago Closed 4 years ago
Mobile twitter site does not show animated gifs when logged in
STR: 1. Log out of twitter (or open a Private Browsing window) 2. Open the URL (https://mobile.twitter.com/HoldMyBeerGif/status/615271986303008770) 3. Click the thumbnail with play-button overlay (goes to: https://mobile.twitter.com/HoldMyBeerGif/status/615271986303008770/video/1) 4. Enjoy video 5. Log in to twitter 6. Open the same URL 7. Click the thumbnail (goes to: https://mobile.twitter.com/HoldMyBeerGif/status/615271986303008770/photos) Expected result: Enjoy the video Actual result: Only a static thumbnail is served. Note that even navigating directly to the 'video' URL (https://mobile.twitter.com/HoldMyBeerGif/status/615271986303008770/video/1) produces the same result. I see a similar result in Chrome. It appears twitter is serving the wrong content when logged in.
Yeah, weird. Here's a gist comparing the markup of the media card for logged in/logged out users. Hi Jeremy, could you bring this to the attention of some m.twitter.com devs? It's also affecting mobile Chrome.

Another friend at Twitter brought this to the attention of the Twitter mobile team.
Thanks for keeping this updated. Will we hear word back once a fix is implemented, or should we just test periodically?

Is it still happening?

This is fixed now, likely when they redesigned. (tested with https://mobile.twitter.com/HoldMyBeerGif/status/745937073572552705)
