Substack is creating a Twitter-style feature called Notes
Twitter has an official function to embed tweets, and it is possible to directly display a specific tweet without taking a screenshot.
However, on April 6, 2023, Substack suddenly stopped embedding tweets. Substack's official Twitter account said, 'We are investigating reports that Twitter embedding and authentication are no longer working in Substack. We are actively working to resolve this issue and will share more information as it becomes available. ' said.

On April 5th, a day before tweet embedding became impossible, Substack announced a new feature called 'Notes.' With this Notes function, you can post text, images, and links and display them in a feed that is often found on SNS. It was very similar to Twitter, as he said.
A Substack spokesperson did not comment on whether the ban on embedding tweets was caused by Twitter's free API restrictions, but IT news site The Verge said, ``We are affected by Twitter's new API policy. Substack is not the only one, 'he hinted at the possibility of retaliation for Substack's Notes announcement.
However, the impact of Twitter's API policy change is also being seen on other platforms, although it won't ban embedding tweets.

For example, WordPress, an open source website building platform, has revealed that it can no longer automatically share posts to Twitter due to restricted access to the Twitter API.
Our access to the Twitter API is currently blocked. As a result, Jetpack Social is temporarily unable to automatically share your posts directly from https://t.co/eRvNKWaolr to Twitter. We have reached out to Twitter for more information on how to get unblocked.—WordPress.com (@wordpressdotcom) April 4, 2023
In addition, Social Bearing, which provides services related to Twitter analytics, reports that access to Twitter's free API has been revoked, making it impossible to operate.
