If you use the Genesis Latest Tweets plugin to display a list of recent tweets on your website (or your client’s website) you might have noticed it ‘breaking’ recently.
I won’t get into details (because I don’t have them) but this is due to a change in the way that Twitter’s API is handling requests like these from now on.
In short, in order to keep the plugin running the way you want it you’ll need to register an ‘app’ with the Twitter API in the developer part of their website.
Although it’s annoying not just be able to open the plugin and go (not the developers’ fault) this is a free, one time process that you need to do and will probably take you less than two minutes.
There are basic instructions on how to do this in the app itself but I thought I’d expand on them a little here as I know a lot of people use this plugin and – like me – probably aren’t very familiar with Twitter’s developer area.
Voila, you now have the updated Genesis Latest Tweets widget running on your site.
This guide was based on Genesis Latest Tweets version 1.2.2 but should be good for the foreseeable future — Nick
