    How can I display avatars along side with tweets?

    The demo is not functioning.
    I am also experiencing the same problem on my site. The “Loading Tweets” keeps spinning.

      Hi David, we’ve released Twiget version 1.1 yesterday. Please update it in your site.

    This has suddenly stopped working for me. I haven’t changed anything or run any updates on my website, but I am now just seeing “Loading Tweets” and nothing is displayed. Any ideas?

    1. Prasanna SP

      We’ve released version 1.1 yesterday. Please update it in your site.

    Can I move the Follow link at the bottom up? Where would I do that? Thank you.
