[Plugin: Tweetable] Doesn't handle Twitter capacity problems or outages
The current version of this plugin, as well as previous versions, doesnt gracefully handle twitter capacity problems (the whale) or outages (no response at all, as happening right now: see http://mashable.com/2012/06/21/twitter-down-june-2012/)
In the former case (whale): when placed inside a widget, simply break the output, resulting in a widget with a broken layout (no bottom part). Instead it should show something like “twitter is having problems. please check back later.”
Worse, the latter case (outage): halt the front facing section of wordpress completely with an error 500.
There has got to be a way (or plugin) to better handle this situation…
