    Hi,

    Good tip but the URI's have been deprecated.

    "http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/TWITTER-USERNAME.json?callback=twitterCallback2&count=5"

    becomes

    "https://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline/TWITTER-USERNAME.json?callback=twitterCallback2&count=5"

    HTH

    Thanks, Matt. Your comment fixed a problem for me. My tweets stopped appearing on my blog recently. I checked the "before" link above and saw it was dead. Did some Googling, found this page and your "after" link. I edited my WordPress theme and all now works.

    Thanks!
