Sometimes Brid.gy can miss tweets. Here I suspect it’s because of the t.co wrapping as well as searching the entirety of the stream for your URL since it wasn’t a direct reply to your original tweet. Ryan Barrett may have more info.
In this case, I was able to re-force it to send by putting the permalink for the missing tweet into the
Resend for Post field at https://brid.gy/twitter/TheGreenGreek. Hopefully it shows up for you on rebuild.
Based on your request tweet, I thought you had wanted your original Tweet to show up in your comment thread, which might be useful in some cases. And perhaps you do want that too, though to my knowledge Brid.gy doesn’t do that. I have a set up on my site that sends refbacks which then parse and display as native comments much the same way webmentions do. Generally this drives me nuts, and I always hide these refbacks from syndicated copies of my content as they look like duplicates.
