Why do my Twitter widgets often say "Unknown Twitter error"? What is the best way to fix it?

I have several websites build on Platform and I very often see error messages in the Twitter widget at the bottom of the page. Is there a rule that says how often you need to tweet to keep that area populated? If so, what is it? What can I do about this? When I leave that area blank it tells me to add in a Twitter account even when I am not logged in. Thanks so much!

No its actually twitters rate limiting, a few months ago they added API limiting per IP, so the server your website is hosted on is getting limited by twitter. Probably not your fault, could be one of the other 300+ sites also hosted there. Talk to your host, ask for a dedicated IP. http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/web-sites-on-web-server/
