    Without Twitter Tools, WordPress performances are excellent. When I enable it, pages can take up to 3-4 seconds to load.

    It sounds like your server is unable to contact Twitter to get updates, so it is trying with every page load and timing out. After a successful check it waits 10 minutes to try again.

    However, Twitter Tools tries to connect to Twitter using the register_shutdown_action hook so it should only be making this call after the page load is complete (so there is no impact on page load time).

    Perhaps there are some server settings or server/version compatibility issues or something that force this hook to work during the page load time.

    Either way, it sounds like it isn't working for you so I'd disable it.
