Unfortunately, there is a problem with handling of a certain type of link: Picture links especially in the original tweets seem to get chewed up when “digested.” I’m trying to get in contact with the developer, and will be trying out some further hacks as time allows.

The numbering format is based on code by Roger Johansson.
