    Ok I got it work, but I had to use a workaround ...

    The problem is that the way to retrieve the posts from twitter doesn't retrieve any post for any accounts that I've tried.

    So I just add a custom mode where I putted the url to retrieve my tweets.

    Ugly workaround, and the image option doesn't work as well, but at least I got my tweet in my wp page.

    Hi,

    Can you tell me the workaround you made please? Can you DM me on Twitter?

    I have found a few people have seen issues with no feed appearing and has to do with the RSS the plugins grab rather than the plugin itself. In the next update I will have another option called "planB" or something so that it retrieves from anther RSS.

    Hi Alex,

    I just follow your urls in the plugin and saw that twitter doesn't find any account that I know with that search method... might be a twitter search bug, but still doesn't works for any of mine accounts.

    To fix the problem I've added this mode to the plugin:

    if ($mode == "sws") { $twitter_rss = "http://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.rss?user_id=16541667"; }

    I know is not elegant to do and the images doesn't work as well, but it fixed my problem.

    Cheers
    Alessandro

    Thanks for this. The API URL is the one I used in the earlier plugin versions.

    I will definitely have to put this back in on the next update using these alternate RSS URLs. Thanks again. I will update this post once it's released.
