    Not sure what the problem is, but a couple of ideas.

    If you turn the other Twitter plugin off (actually deactivate it) is there still an issue? There could be a conflict between the dueling Twitter plugins.

    If turning the other plugin off doesn’t fix the problem immediately, give it an hour. It’s possible that Twitter for WP is serving up a cached version, and burning through the rate limit before Twitter Wings can access it.

    Hope this helps. Thanks for downloading.

    I’m having the same issue with my Twitter Wings widget. I had some other Twitter plugins, which I deleted. Still lacking my updates. I do have the Facebook, Twitter & Google+ Social Widgets plugin on my posts, but I wouldn’t think that would interfere.

    I don’t think it’s a conflict with the social widgets, but i could be a conflict with one of your plugins or the theme itself.

    What is more likely is that your server cannot connect to the Twitter API because the rate limit has been exhausted.

    A future version of the plugin will have a debugging option that will help diagnose these kinds of issues.

    If you know how, ssh on to your server and type curl This will return something like:

    <reset-time-in-seconds type="integer">1320702143</reset-time-in-seconds>
    <reset-time type="datetime">2011-11-07T21:42:23+00:00</reset-time>
    <remaining-hits type="integer">146</remaining-hits>
    <hourly-limit type="integer">150</hourly-limit>

    If your remaining hits value is zero, you know that the rate limit is the issue. This may not be your fault. If you are on a shared server someone’s site may be responsible.

    Good luck.

    Thanks for the advice. I deactivating all widgets except Twitter Wings and tried both the Twenty-Ten and Twenty-Eleven themes with no luck at all – Twitter Wings still wasn’t working.

    I think I’ll have to use another widget until a version with debugging is available as I can’t ssh.

    Thanks again.

    I’m having the same issue.

    Output from the curl command:

    me:~ > curl
    <?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?>
    <remaining-hits type=”integer”>115</remaining-hits>
    <hourly-limit type=”integer”>150</hourly-limit>
    <reset-time-in-seconds type=”integer”>1321109694</reset-time-in-seconds>
    <reset-time type=”datetime”>2011-11-12T14:54:54+00:00</reset-time>

    I like the options that seem to be available with this widget so I hope this issue can be fixed.

    Can you send me a link to your site?

    Hope I can help. Thanks for downloading.

    I hope you can figure this out… I’ve tried nearly a dozen other twitter widgets & none seem to have the depth of configuration options as Twitter Wings.

    I too love the twitter wings widget. Having same issue at Thanks if anyone knows a fix.
