FAQ

Q: Why do I have to trouble with all of this?
A: Twitter is removing access for all unauthorized requests, so every extension which wants to connect to Twitter must use authentication, otherwise it will stop working (many already have).

Q: My widget doesn’t work!
A: Make sure that you have copied the correct keys. If widget type is set to timeline, make sure you chose a valid Twitter username. If widget type is set to search, Twitter may return error if search query is extremely complex.

Q: Do you cache results?
A: Yes, but you should almost always see the latest tweets. Widget will always try to get the latest tweets and save them to a cache. In case of a problem, tweets will be retrived from the cache. For high traffic sites (more than 10.000 visits per day), you may occasionally get tweets from the cache, as Twitter doesn’t allow more than 180 requests per 15 minutes. If you use more requests than allowed, widget will display latest saved tweets from the cache, until new 15 minute window opens.
