    Error: Twitter did not respond. Please wait a few minutes and refresh this page.

    The blog I need help with is luv2byteyou.wordpress.com.

    twitter itself has been having problems lately, it might be because of that.

    The problem is definitely on Twitter’s end. The feed usually returns in a minute or two.

    @thehappinessprincess: Please do not ask the same question in multiple open threads. It just confuses everyone and does not make you get help any faster.

    Have you tried any of the solutions here?

    Hi, my question is relevant to this thread.

    I have the standard Twitter widget, but it only displays my tweets. Is this normal? Am i not supposed to have tweets that mention me (others retweeting or responding to my tweets) also be displayed on my widget?

    If the Twitter widget only displays my tweets, then how else can I have a twitter widget include responses or mentions of my tweets?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, it’s normal that the widget only display your tweets.

    Sorry, but I don’t know of a way to display mentions. But if another volunteer knows, they’ll probably come by.
