I hear you, Micheal. I have the same thoughts about Twitter feed. I will raise this issue with my UX team to see if we can avoid embedded feeds.

off-topic but I very often can not see twitter feeds because I block
third party resources that send tracking cookies, and twitter feeds
embedded in web pages often do.

Personally if I want to see someone's twitter feed, I will click on the
link they provide to their actual twitter account. I don't need or want
it embedded in the web page I am viewing, it is just visualize noise -
when it even displays at all (which is usually only after I have cleared
all cookies the browser has been storing)
