My Twitter username is @MrChrisGWhite but Rotating Tweets is now displaying the Tweets of another user Andy White (@white).Despite putting in the correct regenerated API Consumer Key, API Consumer Secret, API Access Token and API Access Token Secret taken from my own @MrChrisGWhite development account, the Rotating Tweets plugin is rotating the Tweets from @white who is not related to me or my business.I have disabled the plugin on my live site (link: though the issue can be viewed on my test site (link: Many thanks for any advice as to how to resolve this situation.

    Hi Chris,

    Not sure why this is happening – but the following error is showing up in your HTML…

    <!-- Twitter error: 89 - Invalid or expired token. -->

    More here.

    Are you doing this with a shortcode or a widget?

    Hi Martin,
    Thanks for getting back so quickly. The reason for Invalid or expired token on the test site was that I hadn’t updated that site with the new APIs (though the problem was still occurring on the live site). Your question of “Are you doing this with a shortcode or a widget?” prompted me into looking at how the webdesigner had set it up on the new site. I discovered that he had installed the widget but had put my name Chris White into the Twitter Name field instead of @MrChrisGWHite. Having just corrected this, it all seems to be working and my public site is now live again with the correct feed.
    Many thanks for your help with this and the great widget. Donation on its way…
    Chris White
