The new twitter API 1.1 says that the used method to retrieve the tweets is deprecated.
Furthermore, the new twitter widgets (called Twitter Timelines) seem to use an iFrame so you can't apply CSS to the iFrame. Plus, they don't seem to be as configurable as the old widgets. So is the solution to use the API?
Seriously, not a single person has a fix or comment for this? Isn't this a core feature of this module?
I've hacked at this as best as I can but I have no idea how to get Twitter's new code working with the Social Media module.
UPDATE: Here's a work-around.
Go to https://twitter.com/settings/widgets. Make yourself a Twitter widget, customizing the settings you want here.
Copy the embed code from your widget page.
Create a new block.
Paste the embed code into the block. Make sure you've got a WYSIWYG text format that can accept unrestricted code.
Save your block, place it in a region. That's it, you'll have your twitter feed wherever your block is placed.
I've put together the beginnings of a small patch to allow the twitter-profile widget to work again ... needs some further testing ...
The twitter timeline widget is now authenticated:
i.e.: you must create it from your account (read: it must exist in your account):
Not sure where to begin :
Should the twitter profil have a "paste box" for that info? admin/config/media/socialmedia/profiles
Should the twitter widget have that info? admin/structure/widgets/sets/edit/twitter-profile-widget
I'm not familiar with the widget api.
Attached is a reroll of #4 with the addition of a description that outlines the need to create and configure the widget at https://twitter.com/settings/widgets
Like @nlambert I am unfamiliar with the widgets module so am not sure if this is the best place to override. admin/config/media/socialmedia/profiles relates to all profile settings how however this is a widget specific setting and so the patch goes with the idea of editing the widget at admin/structure/widgets/sets/edit/twitter-profile-widget
At the very least this makes the twitter widget functional again.
