[resolved] TT v3.03 not getting tweets (8 posts)

    Twitter Tools has stopped downloading new tweets - this is happening on two different sites with different hosts. Everything was configured fine. Both will fetch tweets if I manually download, but won;t grab them automatically anymore.

    I notice a lot of people are complaining bout this since three months or more. Will this common bug be addressed ? I see TT's rating keeps falling....a pity, it's otherwisse a fantastic free plugin.

    Same problem, but it's worse on my website, tweets aren't downloaded, even if using manual forced download… no more tweets displayed for weeks

    No interest from the dev in answering here. A shame. I'm working through trying to see where it's stuck. I think it's probably the old favourite 'plugin conflict', perhaps with Jetpack.

    I still use Social 2.7, and there's still the same problem.

    Ok, I'm all up to date on Social and Twitter Tools, but it's just not working.

    Alex, I'm happy to provide logs/data/my first born to try to help get this working - let me know.

    Did anyone ever find a fix for this? I currently have everything up to date, but same issue as OP.

    It could be due to mutualized hosting: twitter has a maximum request number to its API per time and per IP address.
    So, if many websites on the same server use the API with the same IP address, there will be no response after the request quota has been reached. And it seems to be very low (I've read about 1000/hour).
