Don't display Snap preview icon beside links (optionally)

Don't display Snap preview icon beside links (optionally)

Short, concise description of the idea
Allow paid users to disable the little icon that indicates the presence of Snap's external preview.

Full description of the idea
Having a white square icon beside every one of my links is superflouous aesthetically displeasing, especially on dark schemes.
If paid users are allowed to control the presence of this feature, they should also be allowed to disable the little preview icon.

An ordered list of benefits
  • The icon is aesthetically displeasing on many schemes.
    The icon is potentially distracting at all times.
    The icon says, multiple times, what needs to be said once. Since one does not seem able to disable the preview on a per-link basis, it is also very superfluous to be shown by every link.
    The change is theoretically very superficial.
    Provides paid users more granularity on how their page is presented.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Some users appreciate the enforced "warning." of preview behaviour.
    There really isn't any [other] appropriate place to indicate the presence of this behaviour.
