If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
For some reason the Twitter widget is no longer being fed by new tweets. Any idea why this is happening?
Yes, Twitter started to shutdown the current api on June 11 ( http://www.mediabistro.com/alltwitter/twitter-delays-api-shutdown_b41602 ) and our widget does not support the new api. Thus the widget won’t work anymore. You can use a plugin like http://wordpress.org/plugins/twitter-widget-pro/ which supports the new api or generate a widget here: https://twitter.com/settings/widgets . Because the new authentication process is very complex we decided that we won’t bundle a twitter widget with the theme anymore and we’ll remove it with the next update.
