    Hi there,

    I have been working on an app that intergrates the twitter widget.
    When i copy the source from the twitter config page and paste it in my view in the app.

    it displays correctly in the simulator.

    when i run it on my phone (android 4.2.2) the text loading tweets stays.
    the text needed to be replaced when done loading.
     
    i figgured out when i click on the "empty" view the tweets are there but i cant see them.
    when i switch to an other tab and return to the twitter view it is showing correctly.

    can someone help me? 

    tried it very long on different ways now.

    Hi Jan,

    Since your initial report does not provide any details, we have attempted to reproduce your issue using the following workflow.
    1. Log in Twitter and navigate to Settings -> Widgets.
    2. Create a simple widget and copy the generated code. (This creates a Twitter Timeline widget, by default.)
    3. Run Graphite and create a Kendo UI Mobile project.
    4. Paste the code in the Home view.
    5. Build and deploy the app via QR code on an HTC One running Android 4.2.2.

    The Twitter widget loads and displays all tweets in the Icenium timeline. Please, find the attached sample.

    Let us know if you are using some other Twitter widget (even third-party ones) and attach a copy of your project so we can examine it.

    Hi Iva,

    Thanks for your reply.

    first i have followed your steps. But getting the same problem.
    after  i downloaded your source code and run the example i get the following.

    in the simulator its working correctly.
    on my device it doesnt.
    when i click the flat button it shows up. before it doesnt.

    do you have an other solution?

    Hi Jan,

    This appears to be a common issue with the embedded twitter timeline (here, here and here). Further, even if you manage to achieve the desired behavior following this approach, it won't work on iOS devices as said here.

    A possible solution is to use the Twitter REST API or to use the InAppBrowser plugin to open the twitter timeline. You can check here for more detailed explanation of the process.

    I hope this helps.
