I've updated the Twitter Widget to make things a bit easier.  New features include:

  • Auto updating cache.
  • Configurable polling interval.
  • Configurable "Follow me" text.
  • Exception output to "Follow me" link.

Just download here and drop into the Twitter Folder.

These are nice features.  Nice work on the CacheDependency class too.  These features are now in the Twitter widget included in BE

I added a little error handling when the feed is downloaded from Twitter, to prevent any crashes or application errors when/if Twitter is unreachable ... it happens with Twitter!  :-)

I also made the polling interval in minutes, with a note on the Edit page indicating this.

Great! LOL!  All changes I made on my side as well!  Let me know if you are looking for any help with BE.

Ben, could you include my fixes as well?
