[resolved] Current API Usage immediately at Used: 150, Remaining: 0 (3 posts)

    Good evening,
    I've just installed the widget (2.4.1) and got it working beautifully on my development computer. The widget is placed in the sidebar and shows the last tweet. In production, however, the widget doesn't show anything on the site. In the settings on the production server the current API usage is always Used: 150, Remaining: 0, even though I only requested the page a couple of times. Any help would be appreciated.
    Kind regards,

    Unfortunately that means you're on a shared host and other people on your same IP (depending on the host this could be hundreds of other sites) are using all the requests as soon as they become available. The only solution currently is to ask your host to move to to an IP that doesn't have such high usage. Hopefully in another month I'll have oAuth added to the plugin and you'll be able to deal with requests on a per-username basis instead of per-IP.

    Hi Aaron,

    Thanks for the response. I don't have enough clout with the provider to get him to move to another IP, so I'll have to wait for the oAuth update of the plugin. In the meantime, I'll create a Twitter application for the website, to get the oAuth credentials. At least I'll have that ready :-).
    Kind regards,
