Support » Plugin: Custom Twitter Feeds » Waiting for platform.twitter.com

  • While working on building a site, I keep finding my page load completely stalled, with “Waiting for platform.twitter.com” appearing in the bottom left of Firefox window. The only way out is to stop loading and refresh the page. This has been an issue in Firefox since 2011 (apparently) but v irritating.

    Is there any way to tell Firefox (from the server end!) that this embed is ‘non-critical’ content, and to get on with rendering the rest of the page, rather than waiting indefinitely for the (often overloaded) Twitter servers? I’m guessing there might, for example, be an SEO trick that would achieve this?

    Thanks.

    Hey WWWolf,

    Sorry for the delay here!

    We have been discussing this internally. Look for some improvement with this in future updates. We have a few ideas we are going to try out.

    Let me know if you have questions in the meantime!

    – Craig
