TOPIC: Can't get data from Twitter at the momment! - API change

Can't get data from Twitter at the momment! - API change 3 years 11 months ago #2656

Since last week (when Twitter changed some bits of their API) the module isn't able to retrieve data anymore.
(Also on your won demosite: demo.omegatheme.com/joomla17/extensions.html)

Is that something that's going to be fixed in the nearby future?
I've got several instances of this module around, and will have to look for alternatives if no action is undertaken soon: clients are on my neck ;)

Do you have any idea, when approximately that will be...?
Are we talking about days, weeks or months?

cheers

The fix is extremely easy ;)
The issue is this change: dev.twitter.com/discussions/10803

Just updated the module with the following, until your update comes along:
helper.php, line 25:
			// changed by sejKo 2012-10-22 due to API change: https://dev.twitter.com/discussions/10803
			#$url = 'http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/' . $twitterUsername .'.xml';
			$url = 'https://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.xml?screen_name=' . $twitterUsername;

helper.php, line 42:
			// changed by sejKo 2012-10-22 due to API change: https://dev.twitter.com/discussions/10803
            		#curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, 'http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/' . $twitterUsername .'.json');
			curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, 'https://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.json?screen_name=' . $twitterUsername);
