Why do some post not display on an embedded timeline


#1

It has been 19 hours since a tweet and it is not displaying on an embedded Twitter timeline of an external site (widget script was generated by Twitter recently). Initially, I thought it was a refresh issue, but my client pointed out that another post from a month ago was not displaying either. All others seem to display. Is this a common issue? Can it be resolved?


#2

One more detail to add, both of the missing posts begin with “@”

  • example:
    @rtiresearch staffer John Houghton running in @onerunforboston - awesome non-stop running relay from LA to Boston onerunforboston.org

Is that “@” symbol the issue?

By default replies (tweets starting with @) are not displayed in embedded timelines.
To display them, go in the widget settings page and uncheck Exclude replies.
