Embed SVG Altmetric Badges by default

Given the benefits of using SVG images (tiny file sizes, scalability, appearance on high DPI displays [eg most phones these days]), can the Altmetric badge embed code be updated to use SVGs?

I see that the main Altmetric pages (eg https://www.altmetric.com/details/2068207) use SVGs by linking to URLs like this one:


which is just the addition of "&svg" to the query string of the badge URL, so the API supports it, it's just a case of the embed JS needing this support.

A fallback to PNG could be offered for anyone using an ancient browser that lacks SVG support (eg IE 8 could be detected), but otherwise SVG support is widespread (https://caniuse.com/#search=svg). Implementing this resolves issues like https://help.altmetric.com/support/discussions/topics/6000052349 in one fell swoop.

 By the default of the scalability then from the images to store of the all other software have appearance then only support. Benefits about the whispered on the https://www.topratedessayservices.com/ website will also demoralization have to pretend then only utmost uses.
