  • (2016-05-25) Will Reed: It's a great bonus for Reddit but it tends to grab the wrong tweet in a chain. I also with it displayed pics/vids in it too. Otherwise I love it.
  • (2015-03-07) Meatwrist: I browse Reddit a lot, and this extension makes it less of a pain to view tweets by players/writers/etc. The developer seems to be very active and receptive as well, which is always a plus!

    Anytime my cursor happens across a link with no href, I get an error in the console, "Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'match' of undefined." hovertweet.js, line 37. tweetUrl is coming back null.
