Actually, the ability to see linked posts (but not any replies of anything like that), was reinstated, due to the fierce reaction.
...except with some posts.
I don't know of any pattern, to which posts can, or can't, be viewed without logging in
...but worst of all, the ones that you can't see, don't give you a "you must log in to view", but an error message telling you the post doesn't exist!
(I created a basic account, purely for the purpose of viewing linked posts ...and some artists who, for some reason, post their illustrations on Twitter. I'd prefer to avoid the platform, even before Elon bought it)

Clearly I am behind the times. I didn't even know X existed. X just sounds stupid. I think it will always be Twitter to me.

I'm not sure if I should look down on you, for not being aware of what is happening, or be deeply envious of you, for not being aware of what is happening.

LOL. It's definitely Twitter. I don't use it anyway but I'll never call it X.

(Late to the party but wanted to add)

It is not only a problem for X/Twitter but other websites with databases have fields with twitter as a name.

Example: The Mangaupdates database backend has a string variable named "twitter" under authors

Other places it will stay the twitter/blue bird logo for a long time if not forever

- Jury duty instructional videos on what you can't do
- religious (like individual church pages) and museum webpages
