Known Issues/Bugs & Problems still to be Fixed/Changed/Added
If you edit a post (sometimes when posting) with an embedded tweet it may not display after you save your changes. Reloading the page will make the tweet display again. The page needs a full reload, it doesn't like the AJAX reload. Same thing happens with the Imgur GIFV.
