Api request not fullfilled in 30 secs


hey i’ve set up my web server, and from using php and cron i want to display my tweets on an lcd.
my code works but i’ve started to get a cron error recently.
after some research on the net, it said that this error could be due to the twitter API request not fullfilling within 30secs
they said to ask to extend the time to 1 min is that possible?
