    Hi!
    I have the same problem. I just noticed that no tweets are shown since July 11. I am using it on http://blog.jensen-localization.com.

    Could you please advice?

    Thanks!

    Kind regards,
    Alicia

    Same problem. Been using for months – ran great.

    Then for no reason (I didn’t install anything – no WP upgrades )and it has been 11 days ago since last post shown. My twitter is updating – I do daily posts, but doesn’t show in this widget.

    What gives ?

    Any ideas? Fixes ?

    It all has to do with twitters new API(v1.1).Twitter have been slowly introducing the new API over the last six months and completely stop the old as of 2 weeks ago. I have found a few different site the supply code that can support the new API;

    Hi all i found a better/easier plugin http://wordpress.org/plugins/rotatingtweets/

    PReno is correct, twitter killed their old API. This happened in 2010 and I had to rewrite the whole plugin back then, too. I’ll make the changes whenever I get some free time.

    Thanks Corey. I like the simplicity of how your plugin looks. In the meantime I’ve just plugged in the standard Twitter widget but if you could keep us informed of progress I think I’d be inclined to switch back to yours when it’s done.

    Good luck – it can’t be easy!!

    Hi Corey & Andy;

    Understand. I don’t envy plugin authors. I sure hope that sites like Twitter support all the plug-in authors in their endeavours at writing good utilities to extend twitter feeds onto websites, etc.

    This plugin worked the best & most reliably for me for the past 6 months. Twitter Widget Pro, did work, then wouldn’t update. Always had locks on & I had to clear. Finally ditched several months ago to this one – now the API at twitter changed. I use plug-ins because I do NOT want to “muck” with code. The rotatingtweets mentioned above looks OK, except it only shows 1 tweet at a time – would prefer if it flashed 3-5 at a time for 10 secs or so. Also, I am not confident that it’s interface works with the new twitter API ??

    Again, I don’t endeavor to be a programmer, so want a good stable plug-in.

    If anyone comes across any that look nice on a website, please let me/us know.

    I still prefer this one, if the author can fix soon enough – “Latest Twitter Sidebar Widget” 😉

    Thx

    Hi all,

    Just to confirm, Rotating Tweets works with the new Twitter API.

    Anyone who wants to borrow the code I pulled together (inspired and helped by the work of Abraham Williams and the oAuth Twitter Feed of Liam Gaddy) and reapply it to their own plug-in is welcome to do so.

    As T says, Rotating Tweets doesn’t yet rotate groups of 3-4 Tweets, although this is in development.
