Fix for broken Twitter feed

Yesterday, one of the sites I maintain was displaying Tweets. Today, they disappeared. What’s going on? After digging through Twitter’s developer site, I found that Twitter recently updated their API. This has caused some websites to stop displaying Tweets within a page. Luckily, there is an easy fix for this.

Go to the line of Javascript on your site that includes this:
http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/

Change the first part of it to:
http://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline/

Voilà, problem solved.

If you’re using WordPress with the GoodLayers Twitter widget and it’s not loading your Tweets, you’ll have to make this change in the twitter-widget.php, as outlined by Clark Communications.
