I work at a large university. In an attempt to enhance communications I looked to embed a Twitter feed into pages within our website.
Sometimes the Twitter feed works fine. Other times the feed is completely empty apart from the Twitter logo and design.
One of our tech guys suggested that twitter only allows 150 connections before it blocks embedded feeds from an ip - because our machines all run through a cache so our ip’s look the same externally, hence the limit. With approx 15-20,000 folks on campus, that 150 limit is reached very quickly.
I’ve noticed this on my personal website when accessed at work - sometimes the Twitter feed works and other times it’s blank. However accessing off campus the feed is there all the time. Therefore, a Twitter feed on any web page is liable to be unaccessible if the user is on the campus network.
Does this make sense to others? Is there a work around?
