Previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously.
So, if you view the source on this post, you will see that every reference to the "fisae5mxkaaar5w" image is an absolute URL pointing at cdn.jwz.org. This means that the only hits on that image that I should see in my access_log should be from CloudFront. And yet I also see these UAs:

Are these motherfuckers actually rewriting "cdn" to "www" before retrieving images? What the actual fuck?
The "www" address is mentioned in your rss feed, in an "enclosure" element:
curl https://cdn.jwz.org/blog/feed/ | grep fisae5mxkaaar5w
I usually see the lede image of a blog post as an attachment in both Reeder and NetNewsWire.
Since I don't use those programs, I have no idea what that means.
Aha! Thank you!
fisae5mxkaaar5w.jpg as hosted on your website is lower resolution than the one on nitter. That means readers can't enjoy the chat window on the bottom right properly.
Apparently, he's also forcing accounts to follow Trump: https://www.themarysue.com/twitter-users-say-elons-site-is-forcing-them-to-follow-donald-trump/
Everyone still on the site should check theirs.
