AI Twitter Feeds (Twitter widget & shortcode)
[resolved] Username hyperlink broken at underscore (2 posts)

    I have used this twitter feed widget on a few different websites, and not had any problems until now. When any of my twitter users tag any username that has an underscore in it in a tweet, the username is broken at the underscore and has resulted in a few incorrect or spam site links on the website. For example (and using artificial names for protection), my twitter user tagged someone in a tweet, "@Carli_smith82", and the twitter feed shows "@Carli" with a hyperlink and the rest of the name not a part of the hyperlink. As a result, people were being sent to "@Carli" , which was not the intention. I really like this twitter feed the best of any I have tried, however, with this issue I cannot use it anymore due to security issues for my customers. Please let me know if this issue can be fixed, or if you need any other information from me.

    Hello Sir,

    We have checked username Carli_smith82 given by you on https://twitter.com/ but even twitter can't search this username and to getting tweets of that username. Also it's a twitter problem to confusing when '_' is used in username. You can check this below link for so many user have trouble if username having '_'.

    Thanks & Regards,
