Hello, I am relatively new with the Twitter API, but experienced in PHP.
Last week I started developing an application that is using the trends API and it seemed to be going well. However, since Thursday, the results of the API call have remained the same for the US woeid (23424977) , namely:
For the top 5. These items have not changed in several days.
In looking around the internet for other sites using the API and displaying the results publicly, I see this same trends data being returned. However, this is different than the explicitly defined places you can choose on the Twitter website.
I am hoping someone else can confirm that the trends are “stuck” or give me their trending output for the US Woeid so I can compare.
I have confirmed I am not doing any internal caching. I have also implemented the API with several different codebases I found, as well as even tried with a wordpress plugin - same results with trends.
Any assistance/advice is appreciated. Thanks.
