Twitcker

Frequently Asked Questions

Why couldn't I see the Twitcker after I included the outputted code into my website/blog?

First check if the added snippet is really in your website source. If the Twitcker still doesn't appear please check if any JavaScript error occured (e.g. via your web console from your browser) and you are viewing your site online or a local web server. If it still doesn't show without any errors, contact me please.

I would like to add my native language but how could I do that?

Twitcker appreciate new translators! Just contact us with your name and your native language; we'll reply, sure!

Is it possible to show tweets from more than one Twitterer?

Currently it's not possible and it's also not planned, but if enough users demand this feature we'll think about an implementation.

Is there a possibility to enable a secure connection (HTTPS)?

Yes, of course. Just add a "https://" before the domain name or click here.

How long does it take to update my tweets in the Twitcker?

Currently it takes around 10 minutes to update your tweets. If after at least two hours no updated Twitcker appears, please contact us.

How long is Twitcker online?

Twitcker went online on 16th May 2010. This means we are online for 2629 days or 7,2 years already ;).

Could I change the style of the Twitcker?

As long as the main style of the Twitcker stays as it normally looks like you could modifiy the Twitcker itself as you need it. It's not allowed to remove the [i] button at the right corner without asking for permission. You could add CSS code to your website CSS and set there your custom style. The structure/DOM tree of the default Twitcker looks like that:

div#twitcker-bar a.logo img div.border-left div.border-right a.info div#twitcker-marquee div.box a div.box a div.box a [...]

When went the different versions of Twitcker online and how did they look like?

The first version went online (as already mentioned above) on 16th May 2010. The V2 (version 2) went online on 15th November 2011. The current V3 went online on 15th November 2012 - exactly one year after the previous version. The old versions (V1-V2) looked like that.

There changed something at Twitcker, why that?

Twitcker keeps the right to change the code and thereby (the appearance of) the Ticker itself (if needed) without any notification.

What changed from version to version?

The major change in V2 was, that the users have to sign in with Twitter due scaling problems because of limited Twitter API requests. V3 of Twitcker got a whole redesign and modernisation of the service. The architecture behind the Twitcker changed also completly and no longer depends on jQuery.

Is is possible to load #hashtags instead of tweets?

At the moment it is not supported by Twitcker, but maybe in a next release it will be integrated.

I deleted a Tweet and it still shows up in my ticker, why is that happening?

We are aware of this case and we're working to fix that behaviour in a future release. To fix that for now, you could write a new tweet to update your ticker.

Do I need to add Twitcker to the script-src whitelist with Content Security Policy?

Yes, in case your website includes a Content Security Policy header in the response, please add https://twitcker.com to the list of websites.
