Hi everyone I love the plugin, works really well except for one thing: my host seems to dislike the performance hit that there server is taking from my use of it and decided to disable my access to that site temporarily. When I asked why I could not access my account they sent me the following email (some bits omitted):
We have checked and found that your account causing high load on the server and affecting other running users. Your account php pages are causing extensive cpu usage on server. It is adversely affecting our servers. You can go through the following logs for your confirmation :

(repeated another 10 or so times)
Please explain why is it causing so much cpu usage and what steps will you take so that it doesn't happen in future ?
Please feel free to contact us back in case of any further information.

Would it be that my the way I configured tweet blender is doing this (maybe it is refreshing too often)? Is there some 'usual suspect' for this type of thing? Have I just got a crappy host (very possible)? Or would it be something else?
Obviously I would prefer to use this plugin than other ones but if my host keeps on getting shitty with me for some alleged performance hit and taking my site down I obviously have to disable it for the time being. I would appreciate any advise!
