Twitter feed Widget broken


#1

Whenever I generate a widget on twitter and embed the html code into a website, js fiddle or other html document I just get a link to my twitter feed.

Ive tried using multiple browsers and devices phones etc to no avail. I did a quick google for other sites having the issue and randomly found I was experiencing the same problem this site http://nyuinformatics.org/ but after about ten minutes if fixed itself and now appears fine in chrome. My site however still shows just the link back to my feed.

Ive tried different twitter accounts and each one fails when doing this. Here is the code for my Feed

This is a result of a bug on our side that we are fixing right now.

You are missing data-widget-id. Usually this will be available in the code you copied, but because of a bug on our side that is missing in the code snippet.

You can fix it by finding the widget id (go to the widget in https://twitter.com/settings/widgets) and find the widget id in the url (a large number). Then add the id into data-widget-id="" in the code snippet.

Sorry about the inconvenience.

Edit: Fixed url widget -> widgets

having this same problem, the fix provided does not work.
We have the widget ID embedded properly right from your API widget creation page.

Same issue here:

http://www.harveyssf.com

Error: Cannot augment non-object.http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsLine 1

and

http://www.harveyssf.com/test

Error: TypeError: s is undefined
Source File: http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js
Line: 1

http://www.harveyssf.com/ uses an old version of prototype.js which overrides Array.prototype.reduce with an ES5 incompatible implementation. See this thread for more discussion on the topic.

Hmmm i dont see prototype.js embedded into the page anywhere. Is it a part of some other js file?

What about

http://www.harveyssf.com/test

page?

Seems like a different error.

It looks like it’s getting included in http://www.harveyssf.com/JS/lightbox.js.
