    I've been using the Twitter widget that has the subtitle 'HTC' for a while now. Good looking widget, today it doesn't seem to be working. It doesn't display tweets and just stays blank when I try to refresh. Anyone else having this problem?

    Second, I removed the widget and replaced it, hoping to jog it back on. I noticed I have it and also 2 Twitter widgets with subtitles 'Android (large)' and 'Android (small)'. How are these different than my 'HTC' one? I just want the official Twitter one, I don't need more than 1 Twitter app on my phone. Don't get me started on Peep. Can I delete whichever ones are not official? Thanks for reading all this...

    Not sure about your Twitter not functioning issue. But if I understand your other question correctly, you may be seeing the 2 size options for the HTC/Twitter widget since there are more than one option.

    Also, some widgets do have an Android version and a HTC version, annoying...I know


    Maybe this helps?

    I posted about his same problem yesterday. I can not see any of my tweets either and I am using ( I think ) the Twitter widget (what else is there)?

    This is so weird. Worked one minute, then blank. I messed with mine a bit and I can see my "@/mentions" and my direct messages, just not the tweets. WTF?

    Also, it looks like 2 of my widgets are "Android" and the one I'm using is "HTC". Makes no sense to me...

    So today I bit the bullet and deleted the twitter widget (by long pressing on the word twitter and then clicking on the remove button). Then, from the home screen I clicked the + sign and added the Twitter widget back to a blank screen. And, voila...Twitter was back to normal. Don't know why this happened...just happy I can keep track of everyone I'm following once again.:D

    UPDATE: The widget I'm using is linked to Peep, so apparently not the official Twitter widget. Anyway, I finally fixed the problem. I loaded Peep instead of just the Twitter (HTC) widget, then cleared the cache, and voila my widget now works, shows updates.
