Twitter Like Box Lightbox
Requests to Twitter Exceeds Limit 150 per Hour (3 posts)

    I researched several plugins that create this twitter widget in the Facebook style. This is certainly one of the best, especially about the client side requests.

    Twitter has a limit of 150 requests accepted per hour, and after that limit, it no longer returns the results.

    This limit should not be a problem in this case, since the users are who make the requests to twitter by javascript.

    However, I identified a bug in followers loading. After print the followers list, with each thumbnails, the list is reloaded indefinitely. Probably some problem with the loop that makes this task.

    So, in a single page view, the limit of 150 requests to Twitter is exceeded for that user.

    I know that the plugin has not been maintained, but it would be interesting to fix this little problem, to make it useful again.

    if I have time in the next few weeks i'll check if a can rewrite the code from scratch. There are also other things which i dont like about yet as an developer. do you think its ok to cache the faces in the box for like a few hours to save requests?

    I also plan to filter those eggs when people dont have an profile pic.
