    const tweetIdMatch = window.location.href.match(/\/status\/(\d+)/);
    const tweetId = tweetIdMatch ? tweetIdMatch[1] : '';
    const containerDiv = document.createElement('div');
    containerDiv.style.display = 'flex';
    containerDiv.style.flexDirection = 'column';
    containerDiv.style.alignItems = 'center';
    containerDiv.style.marginTop = '2rem';
    const heading = document.createElement('h1');
    heading.textContent = 'Tweet Sneak';
    heading.style.fontFamily = '"Segoe UI", Tahoma, Geneva, Verdana, sans-serif';
    heading.style.fontSize = '5rem'
    heading.style.textAlign = 'center';
    containerDiv.appendChild(heading);
    const tweetIframe = document.createElement('iframe');
    tweetIframe.src = `https://platform.twitter.com/embed/Tweet.html?id=${tweetId}`;

    const footer = document.createElement('div');
    footer.style.marginTop = '20px';
    footer.innerHTML = 'Click <a href="https://tweetsneak.pages.dev" target="_blank">here</a> to use web version';
    footer.style.fontFamily = '"Segoe UI", Tahoma, Geneva, Verdana, sans-serif';

    containerDiv.appendChild(footer);
})();

Disable uBO

Disable uBlock Origin for this script to work. And take note that this script has been created primarily for Firefox. It may or may not work in other browsers & I didn't bother to test.
