    Just says "Unable to get tweets" so I installed a different plugin and was able to see the twitter feed.

    Hi malawimama,
    sometimes any Twitter related plugin is unable to get tweets, because of Twitter servers rate limits or cache issues (or configuration errors).

    The plugin works fine in the test and production websites we control, can you try again to load tweets? Also, you could get more details when enabling Debug mode.

    Hi whiletrue

    I am having the same problem and get this error

    Twitter data error: Rate limit exceeded. Clients may not make more than 150 requests per hour.
    Unable to get tweets
    Debug info: [Rate limit exceeded. Clients may not make more than 150 requests per hour.] - username:"myusername"

    What does this mean and how can i fix it?

    Hi Jimladen,
    Twitter servers limit requests by ip; if your website (server) exceeds 150 requests per hour, the plugin is unable to get tweets. The issue should fix itself after some hours.
