Twitter Widget a Bit Delayed?

  1. Greetings kind folk,

    I have a quick question. The Twitter widget that I have installed on my profile is a bit delayed by a few minutes. Is there any way that I can possibly remove this lag or maybe place my own Twitter badge on there?

    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is siridv.com.

  2. No. the time lag is inherent in all widgets as all data is cached. There's nothing we can do at this end at all.

  3. timethief,

    Dang that's really annoying, but it's all fine and dandy for the time being.

    Thanks!

  4. Please also note that we require an active link to the blog in question starting with http:// when you post to the forums so we can examine the blog. Here’s how to link your username to your blog in your blog Dashboard -> Users -> Personal Settings -> then scroll down to Account Details.

    Technology is what it is. Time delays, fail whale overloads and disconnects are common.

    That is true! It's perfectly fine though. WordPress.com is an excellent service and I have no real complaints about it.

  7. Thanks for linking your username to your blog. I'm glad you like it here and wish you all the best with your blog. :)
