  • Resolved hatchemoto


    I’ve installed this plugin on two Linux VPS servers. I couldn’t figure out why they kept slowing down and hanging for several seconds each time a post got tweeted. I’ve got several sites on both servers and everything’s been running smoothly for months on them with several blogs and plugins. I finally deactivated all plugins and did some experiments with just the wp-twitter plugin activated and found at that each time a post got tweeted the plugin was consuming over 400MB of ram! Needless to say I had to deactivate it, which is a shame because I’d really like to use it. Has anyone else experienced delays when posting tweets from WP?

    Seriously? Wow – that’s crazy. I have no idea why the plug-in would consume that kind of RAM – but I’ll look into it and try and find out.

    Hi guys, i am having the exact same issue. Recently migrated to a Linux VPS environment from a shared environment and have found that with this plugin enabled, every time a post is added it takes an extra long time to complete.

    For example, with plugin disabled, takes around 1 or 2 seconds for post to completely publish and page reload.

    With plugin enabled, takes anywhere between 10 and 60 seconds to post, and if i try and add multiple posts at the same time (that is a few seconds apart, so the first article is trying to publish when i hit publish on subsequent articles) every post will come up with a 500 Internal Server Error even though generally the posts actually DO publish

    Don’t have any issues with the plugin disabled and have tested this thoroughly by adding 10 or so articles at once.

    Any suggestions? I love this plugin and want to use it but it just causes too many issues now 🙁
