How to make twitter widget reload after "Hmm, an empty timeline" shows up?

javascript
api

#1

Hello everyone, I’m currently working with the Twitter for Websites API to get feeds from some timelines. The issue I am facing is the fact that, in the timelines i have to embbed, one is empty so the API gets me this message “Hmm, an empty timeline” (etc). I could eventually add a tweet manually but the fact is the search term for the timeline will often be empty (because we don’t know if tweets will always be posted to this hashtag in a seven days interval.

My question is this one : how could I make my twitter api reload if the embedded timeline is empty ?

I tried both the scripting method and the embedded timeline given when creating a widget to display tweets but none of them was successful to refresh after displaying this message (I’m sending tweets to this search query and waiting 5 minutes to test if it works)

Sorry for my bad english, I tried to be the most precise I could. And if you have any questions I’ll answer them

Thanks !
