    I am getting the same thing.

    However, I am using it for multiple sidebars within the same website. Some of the Twitter usernames have no problem. Then the other half have the error.

    Help please!
    Thanks!

    • Are you sure your server's PHP installation has json and curl or wget installed?
    • Are your tweets public?
    • Do you know how many websites are running on the same server as yours that are accessing the twitter API?

    Twitter limits the amount of times you can request their data, and once that limit is reached they stop fulfilling requests for as long as they want. If there are 100 other websites on your server all fetching twitter data, there's not much my plugin can do for you.

    Having the same issue as of today "have data = false". I made the plugin's API request manually in my browser and it worked fine. Further, this plugin has been running for a while and only bugged out today. It's back and working now, but this seems to imply the necessity of a deeper caching component.

    Thanks for your feedback, and thank you for trying my plugin. Is your website hosted on your computer? When you make the request from your browser, that makes you client number one to hit the twitter API from your computer's IP address unless you host websites that do so on your machine.

    It's your web server that might have lots of other clients hitting twitter all day that could prevent you from getting data. Each time I update the plugin, I examine the caching logic that saves a backup of tweets it is able to retrieve, and I will continue to do so. Thanks again.

    My host forced an upgrade to 3.5 and now my site is broken. Latest Twitter Sidebar Widget now displays have data = false. Do you have a workaround?

    WP updates shouldn't break your site. This page already explains why you may not see data. I have no other explanation to give. If you are on a shared host with hundreds of other websites, you don't have a lot of options. You could install JetPack and use its twitter widget instead.

    I downloaded your plugin few month ago and installed on my site it was working great. but from the last 10 days its stop updating my tweets. last time on 11 June 2013 tweets updated successfully.
    your using this URL http://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.json?screen_name=$username&include_entities=true to getting the tweets Now Twitter stop the API V1 so I think that why its not working. but I also try to using this URL http://api.twitter.com/1.1/statuses/user_timeline.json?screen_name=$username&include_entities=true I am unable to get the tweets it show me this error {"errors":[{"message":"Bad Authentication data","code":215}]}
    it is really great if you help how I fix it. Thank you so much

    I have this plugin installed on a client's site and they have experienced the same thing as you mentioned miansab2001.

    The tweets are no longer updating. The most recent tweet shown is 39 days ago.

    I notice this plugin is no longer listed in the wordpress extensions directory.
    Do we need to install a different latest twitter plugin now?
