Joomla 2.5 and Twitter feed
I've tried a few modules in Joomla 2.5 for twitter feeds however they slow the website down to a crawl until they've retrieved the info from the twitter servers. Is there a way of forcing it tp run the update after the rest of the site has finsihed loading or does anyone know of a way I can code a php version that does (preferably not using Twitter's own jQuery as this is the problem I think)?

Twitter is currently changing things with their api and how you can use it.
Twitter now suggests that you use their widgets for embedding your timeline on your website. You can find these in the settings section when logged into twitter.com. If those cause the same issue, you can try this php wrapper https://github.com/abraham/twitteroauth. You will need to create your own twitter application at dev.twitter.com.
Let me know if you need any help.
