Widgets limit (100)


#1

Hello, I have 100 Twitter widgets created with my account and when i try to create another i can’t. is there a maximum of 100 widgets set by account?.

Thank you,
José María

There is an upper bound to the number of widgets a user can create. If you need to create more, you might need to use another account.

@episod is there another solution but creating fake Twitter accounts for this problem?
Or should the proper solution be self-creating Twitter “widgets” via the REST API?


#4

That’s one option. I’d also review if you really need to have that many distinct widgets – only the search widgets need a unique widget ID for each query; profile and list widgets are configurable using client-side commands.

Additional accounts wouldn’t necessarily be “fake” – if you’re creating that many widgets, I imagine there are some conceptual boxes that some of them would go into rather than all associated with the same account.

So I can copy/paste the same user timeline widget html code (with the same widget-id) and just change the user?
But then I probably can’t add multiple ones on one page?

You should be able to add multiple user timeline widgets with the same widget id on the same page.


#7

mmmm, all widgets need an id unique, not just search widgets.

For non-search widgets, using Timeline Selection (https://dev.twitter.com/docs/embedded-timelines#timeline-selection) you can override client-side the user or the list a timeline is showing.
