Doesn't update

I've been trying to refresh my Tweets with this plugin since September. It's December now and I didn't want to switch because of the CSS customizations I implemented. Removed and added back. No luck. Uninstalled for good...

doesn't update tweets

this had the promise of being a great minimalist twitter feed. the process of making your own twitter application through dev.twitter before you set up isn't bad, but the plug-in just won't take the codes, it's buttons sometimes disappear when authorizing the account and on the nth time, maybe it will take. i've had this same setup problem on 3 sites across 2 hosting providers.

once you painstakingly get it live tweets won't update unless you go back to the plug-in and manually reset it. maybe it's a problem with my hosting provider, but that doesn't explain why when I changed over to the 'Simple Twitter Tweets' http://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-twitter-tweets/ which uses the same OAuth process, it authorizes on the first try and updates tweets perfectly.

Tried to get support, and the developer simply quit responding.

Gave entire site 500 error

Updated plugin via admin and site disappeared. Had to do entire DB backup and remove plugin to get site back up. There definitely could be a compatibility issue on the site but this update alone brought the site down.

No help

Asked a single question about custom .css because everything I had tried wasn't effecting the plugin. Got no response. Uninstalled.

No longer functions

There's a lot of great code underneath this plugin, but it no longer works. Either Twitter's API changed or the plugin did, but there are several points of failure that now exist, rendering the plugin unusable.

$this->_token comes back as a string, but the code is expecting an Array. The net result makes it impossible to authorize any Twitter account, because the oauth_token sent to the Twitter API comes out as a single character. I managed to get around this with a couple of nested explode() calls that parse the response into an expected format, but once I got my account Authorized, it showed up as "@o" in the list of accounts (which is decidedly not my account name), and no tweets were displayed. At this point, I threw up my hands and deleted the plugin, instead switching to Simple Twitter Tweets, which installed and configured in seconds.

Had the same trouble as others -- authorization needed. But from that point on, you're kind of lost. :(

Not working anymore
By , for WP 3.5.1

Plugin used to be great, but it's not working anymore.

Backend admin keeps on saying: "you need to authorize your twitter account".
