    I tried changing api.twitter.com/1 to api.twitter.com/1.1 but no difference

    I contacted the developer, hopefully he'll make an update.

    Twitter API 1.1 uses different URL's. Not only 1 -> 1.1. And Twitter requires a login for all requests, this is why 1 -> 1.1 will never be enough.

    Most apps/widgets solve this by asking the user/blogger to create a Twitter application and supplying those credentials, see WooDojo Tweets for example:
    http://docs.woothemes.com/document/woodojo-tweets-widget-twitter-api-version-1-1-setup/

    Hope this helps, looks like an interesting plugin to use!

    Cheers for the info. Sadly there's no Oath option in this plugin. So it looks like it would need a complete redoing.

    I tweeted the author twice. Sadly he's not responded but is active on twitter. Keeping that in mind, I'd say this plugin is not going to get any updates from him.

    If anyone takes over it's development. They might mention in here. Or if they know of another that does the same.

    I wrote a guest blog on another blog which was importing tweets. They use Social: http://wordpress.org/plugins/social/. Haven't looked into it yet myself but looks like a solution.

    Yep, I saw Social. Only thing is I see very few blogs(none) where social is actually working 100%. It's counting comments but not Tweets/FB.

    I know disqus and livefyre also do this. But not a fan of 3rd party comment systems like that.

    Shame this developer has feigned interest.

    Is anyone able to test a quick update which adds support for Twitter API v1.1?

    https://github.com/benbalter/Twitter-Mentions-as-Comments/releases/v1.5.5-rc1

    (background: https://github.com/benbalter/Twitter-Mentions-as-Comments/pull/30)

    Hoping to get it updated here and working very soon.

    Settings updated ok. Though your link to the Twitter Devs gives a 404 .

    However when manually checking for new tweets via the plugin it seems to be timing out.

    I believe version v1.5.5. RC2 of the plugin should resolve the problem. If anyone can test and confirm that that is the case by downloading and uploading the linked .zip file, we can update the plugin here. Thanks everyone for their help getting this release polished.

    Yes, that seems to have fixed everything. First update brought in a lot of tweets so still fairly hard on the server but it got through.

    Thanks for updating.

    Great. Will push an update momentarily. Thank you for taking the time to test and report back. I'm sure many users are grateful.

    doesn't work for me. Ever I clik on activate I get the message, that the activation is stopped cause of a fatal error. I also get:

    @moody1337 you are likely using PHP 5.2 which this plugin does not support. On most shared hosts, you should be able to update to PHP 5.3 (or 5.4) which is highly recommended.

    @moody1337 note PHP 5.2 was released in 2006, and has not been supported by PHP itself since 2011. PHP 5.3 has been out since 2009, and PHP 5.5 was just released.

    @1xxooxx you are correct. There was a problem with the upload to the WordPres.org server, but it should be correct now if you redownload.

    Ben,

    Is 1.5.6 ok? I just installed it from wordpress.org and it's crashing my site.

    @Ben Thanks for updating the plugin, I've noticed that your .git files are still in the includes dir. Meant that it threw an error when I trying to commit it to my repo. Probably not causing anyone else issue but thought you should know.

    I have had this plugin for a quite a while and just had an alert:

    "Twitter Mentions as Comments: Twitter Consumer Key and Consumer Secret are missing."

    It is version 1.5.6

    I re-entered them and everything seems to be OK - just thought I would let you know in case thekey and the secret should not have disappeared.

    I get the big red error: "Twitter Mentions as Comments: Twitter Consumer Key and Consumer Secret are missing."

    Then I go to the plugin settings and add them. It says it saves the settings, but it doesnt. I am running the plugins current version (1.5.6 just updated.)

    I just tried to install the latest version (1.5.6) and get this error:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/content/79/8678779/html/wp-content/plugins/twitter-mentions-as-comments/twitter-mentions-as-comments.php on line 110

    Any help appreciated! Thanks

    I'm having the same problem, and I'm running PHP 5.4.14 on amycavender.org.

    The plugin appears to install correctly, but when I try to network activate, I get the following: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/cavender/public_html/wp-content/plugins/Twitter-Mentions-as-Comments-master/twitter-mentions-as-comments.php on line 110

    Any suggestions?
