    user_timeline does not count correctly

    Hi

    I've obseved and read a post  that there's a problem with the twitter API in that if we ask for 3 tweets, and the last 3 are re-tweets I get none! sigh!

    So... a hack work-arround is to ask for lots of tweets, then filter down to the number you want yourself, to o this update the xslt like so:

    line 60:

    <xsl:variable name="twitterXMLUrl" select="concat('http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/', $twitterUsername ,'.xml?count=200')"/> <!-- or some more sensible number -->

    then add a condidtion around your template line 77:

    <xsl:if test="position() &lt; $noStatus">....</xsl:if>

    Hiya Murray thanks for the advice.
    But surely it would show the last 3 tweets that were not retweets instea rather than nothing?

    Yo'd think so wouldn't ya! even the biggest sites do some pretty odd things at times, especially in the social networking area ;-)

    hmm ok thanks to bringing to my attention, it's low on my priority to fix currently.

    If it's a really annoying problem create an issue on the codplex page for me please, so I dont forget about it
