Tweet Blender
[resolved] No tweets found because twitter search does not work (2 posts)

    Hi,

    Im having this problem quite often. The plugin works fine, but I see that it uses the twitter search to get the tweets, and, apparently, sometimes it does not work very well.

    For example
    the user http://twitter.com/casasassociadas has a lot of tweets.

    But if you search for it, you dont find any!
    http://search.twitter.com/search?q=from%3Acasasassociadas

    Therefore the widget wont retrieve any tweets, but I can get them if I get it directly in the code with:

    $tweet=json_decode(file_get_contents("http://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline/casasassociadas.json"));

    Anyone has experienced that and have a workaround?

    cheers

    Leo,,

    Hello leogermani,
    This is a very common problem since Twitter has their own idea on what tweets are important and should be indexed. You'll find numerous threads on this at http://getsatisfaction.com/tweet_blender

    I have created a workaround and it's been in place since version 3.1.6:

    simply go to WP Admin > Settings > Tweet Blender > Advanced tab, check the box "Do not use search API" and save your settings.

    Enjoy!
