I do think it needs to be noted that the solution of modifying your request URL as dan_fisher noted will be deprecated come March 2013 according to Twitter.

Sorry to be stupid. I’ve been trying to search for a fix for a few days. I bought a theme some time back and now the twitter feed isn’t working. I think it is related to this topic, but the scripts here don’t match what I have and dont work. I have a gettwitter.js file with the following:

getTwitters(‘texttwitter’, { id: ‘twitterhandle’, count: 5, enableLinks: true, ignoreReplies: true, clearContents: true });

Is this the script I need to update or it is another file? and does anyone know what the change is? The author if the theme has not updated the theme in a few years.

You can try downloading the theme again and just replacing that one file. Hopefully, your theme author has updated and accounted for this. Not sure if this is true or not, but most of the solutions I’m coming to find will also be deprecated in the upcoming months. It really sucks.

I ended up making a function for a new dynamic sidebar, and downloading this widget – http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/twitter-widget-pro/ – and putting it there. It’s easy to style and still functions. Not sure if it will continue to work, I haven’t looked at the code of it yet to see how it’s working, it was just an easy solution. Hope that helps.

I really don’t know why they are making things more complicated. Yes, the current widely-used solution will only last until March 2013. From what I read, it seems that after this code has also been deprecated, we are forced to register a twitter app in order to obtain the key and tokens, as indicated here : https://dev.twitter.com/discussions/11564#comment-24949

If that is the case, how can we expect the buyers to register an app for themselves?

thanks. I’ll look at the plugin. The theme hasn’t been updated in over two years which sucks and makes me inclined not to use themeforest again.
