Widget not working - Hmm, an empty timeline. That's weird. Check for Tweets


I’m trying to create a widget with search and no matter what key words I put in (#iphone #food), nothing will work and it will always display:

“Hmm, an empty timeline. That’s weird.”

Is there a bug?

Empty Timeline for search based widget reproduction
Embed advanced search widget gives empty timeline
Empty-timeline-for-search-based-widget-reproduction Act II
Intermittent “Hmm, an empty timeline. That's weird.” Message
Empty-timeline-for-search-based-widget-reproduction Act II

I am having the exact same issue
Please check https://twittercommunity.com/t/hmmm-an-empty-timeline-thats-weird/63711/1
and Embed advanced search widget gives empty timeline

If you get any working solution can you please post it here, cause this is a problem for me as well

Can anyone help us?

I having exactly the same issue since 20:44 CET Time - 3/22 2016

I try with a different popular search : no result
I try with a new widget : no result
I try from another account : no result.

Every other widget features work fine : lists / User Timeline / Collection / Liked

Only the search is down and doesn’t sort any results.

Thanks by advance for any information about this issue.


Thanks for the report everyone. We are currently investigating this.


I think this is related to our posts here


I noticed something since my last message.

On 22:55 CET Time one tweet has been shown via the widget on my website.

Nothing since 20:44 CET and until 22:55 CET.
Nothing since 22:55 CET.

But strangely when I check my widget via twitter website / settings / widget it doesn’t show the tweet I have on my website. (http://rkc.noip.me radio station).

Hope it can help.
