    Hi. The widget stopped working yesterday. It no longer displays our recent tweets. It only displays the follow link. Any ideas?

    It appears that Twitter has changed the link used to get status updates. See discussion here: https://dev.twitter.com/discussions/11583

    Until the widget is updated to use the new link, I edited the link within the widget myself. The widget is once again displaying recent tweets.

    From the discussion linked above, it appears that this new link will have a limited lifespan, so additional changes to the widget may be needed in the future.

    From the WordPress Dashboard, click Plugins to list all your plugins. Then beneath the Recent Tweets entry, click Edit.

    Although I forgot all the details (I did this 4 months ago), I see some links around lines 93-94 of the plugin's code. I think it was the src attribute of the second link that I edited.

    I'll paste that line below, though I don't know if this forum will maintain the format:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="https://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline/'.$data['option1'].'.json?callback=twitterCallback2&count='.$data['option2'].'"></script></div><br />';

    When done editing, click Update File.

    Let me know if that helps. ...pt

    I did the same thing as PhilipTobias and the widget works for me. According to ViM, it's line 94.
