    I'm having this weird issue with Twitter feeds not showing through the Contacts app. In my "Accounts and Sync" setting I have both the Twitter account and the Twitter account for Social Hub. I assume this is because I have the individual Twitter app installed on my phone as well as the Social Hub set up with my Twitter account. One account is for the individual Twitter app, the other account is for accessing it through the Social Hub. I've noticed you can pull up Social Hub info for a specific contact through the Contacts app as well.

    I've enable these contacts to show up in the default Contacts app. When I click on the contact, it brings me to their contact info screen which shows me their name, nickname, default ringtone, etc...and at the bottom there is a "Twitter Profile" link with their latest tweet and the blue Twitter icon on the right. When I click on this I get "Cannot retrieve Tweets at this time. Please try again later."
    It's been like that ever since I got the phone. Why is it not showing me their Twitter feed?

    If you do this with a LinkedIn or Facebook contact that's in your Contacts app, there is a link at the bottom of their profile that says either "Facebook profile - View profile" or "LinkedIn Profile - title of job" with their respective icons. Clicking on that takes you to either their Facebook profile or LinkedIn profile. Why is the Twitter link not working?

    Many times this is related to that specific operation, in this case it could be an issue on twitter's end.

    I don't tweet so I can't be alot of help on this one but sometimes unchecking and the re checking twitter in accounts and sync can fix issues like this
