Random users appearing in Tweet Blender output (7 posts)

    Hello! Love the plugin, but I'm seeing tweets from random users saved to the database and appearing in the Blender output. Only one user is listed in the code:

    <?php if (function_exists('tweet_blender_widget')) {
        tweet_blender_widget(array(
        'unique_div_id' => 'tweetblender-t1',
        'sources' => '@achellios',
        'refresh_rate' => 60,
        'tweets_num' => 5,
        'view_more_url' => 'http://twitter.com/achellios'
    )); } ?>

    However, tweets from @ARTIBILITY, @isabellagv, and others are also being recorded. Any idea what might be causing this?

    Had a few similar reports on this today - investigated but didn't see any problems in Tweet Blender configurations. What's the URL of your site?

    I also see a lot of strange results for searches in my Tweet Deck which makes me think Twitter search is having issues today and that is reflected in widgets throughout.

    Apologies for the double-post--I saw the Tweet Blender forums and thought I'd have a look there as well. I noticed this in a similar thread:

    http://getsatisfaction.com/tweet_blender/topics/how_do_i_get_tweet_blender_to_only_show_tweeters_i_pick

    I activated the sidebar widget, edited the user list, saved, then removed the widget--that appears to have corrected the problem, once all the extra tweets are cleared out of the database.

    It seems as though the widget's user list is somehow being mingled with the hard-coded parameters (as you noted, a search for keyword "twitter" would certainly have this symptom).

    Thanks for the quick reply!

    Argh, spoke too soon--the problems started up again last night. I'm also noticing recurring trouble with the Twitter API--have you heard any updates on your end?

    I have the same problem - tweets not by me, but which contains my Twitter alias apparently as a name (even without the @) are randomly appearing.

    Here's an example tweet from someone I don't know:
    RT @helloimnae Mytwitteralias just played my life with all of these old pictures...

    @adastra: can you post a link to your site where I can see the plugin in action? This will allow me to check the settings and see what's up.

    Nevermind, I think I just fixed it - I had my Twitter alias without the @ in the widget settings, but now that I've added the @ I think it's not showing those random tweets anymore :)
