Ok, so this is the weirdest bug report I've ever filed. I've been using this plugin for a couple of years now, but tonight I noticed Twitter clouds and four pictures of a robot with it's right hand amputated appearing at the top of my dash board. At first I thought I'd been hacked; but when I disable this plugin, the clouds and robots go away.
I suspect this plugin is doing something dodgy when grabbing news from the author's twitter feed. The Artiss News & Support dashboard widget it installs says:
Something is technically wrong.
Thanks for noticing—we're going to fix it up and have things back to normal soon
I can disable the dashboard widget, but the clouds and robots remain whenever the plugin is enabled. What's with that?
