    Looks like the plugin broke when Twitter temporarily disabled their old API. I understand that will happen permanently in May. Will you be updating your plugin to use their new API?

    Hi, great plugin! 3 questions:

    1. Will it continue to work properly with the new Twitter API?
    2. Is there a way to get it to scroll more slowly?
    3. What code would I need to put in the CSS to change the font size, color and style of the
    a) title
    b) tweets

    Thanks! :)

    Hi,

    the plugin stopped working today, I guess because of the new Twitter API.
    We are using it on our website’s home page so a quick solution would be helpful.
    Thank you!

    Could you please update this plugin or let us know if you’re not going to be able to?

    My client really needs this functionality up and running and it’s been weeks now. An idea of the time scale would be very much appreciated.
