    Hi!

    I'm getting some issues with this plug-in - although I'm not convinced it's all the plug-in's fault!

    Occasionally it is working fine as you can see here:

    but more often than not it is returning the error: "The connection to twitter has returned an error. Please try again later."

    The reason I started using this plug-in was to replace the older "Twitter for WordPress" plug-in - which wasn't working and hasn't had an update in quite a while.

    My question is - is this a problem at Twitters end or with the plug-in? Is the plug-in refreshing the feed to Twitter too often and I'm having my IP blocked? Can I restrict the number of times the plug-in refreshes the feed - or do I need to take up the issue with twitter or my host directly?

    Many thanks!

    To answer - it's Twitter's end.

    The plugin connects to Twitter's RSS feed. If the RSS feed is down, or twitter is down as a whole, then the plugin does not output the tweets.
