Hi Guys,

I am using the following script:




<script>
JQTWEET = {

// Set twitter username, number of tweets & id/class to append tweets
user: 'username',
numTweets: 3,
appendTo: '#shine-tweet-content',

// core function of jqtweet
loadTweets: function() {
$.ajax({
url: 'http://api.twitter.com/1/statuses/user_timeline.json/',
type: 'GET',
dataType: 'jsonp',
data: {
screen_name: JQTWEET.user,
include_rts: true,
count: JQTWEET.numTweets,
include_entities: true
},
success: function(data, textStatus, xhr) {

var html = '<li class="tweet">TWEET_TEXT<div class="time">AGO</div></li>';

// append tweets into page
for (var i = 0; i < data.length; i++) {
$(JQTWEET.appendTo).append(
html.replace('TWEET_TEXT', JQTWEET.ify.clean(data[i].text) )
.replace(/USER/g, data[i].user.screen_name)
.replace('AGO', JQTWEET.timeAgo(data[i].created_at) )
.replace(/ID/g, data[i].id_str)
);
}
}

});

},


/**

* @param {string} twitter date string returned from Twitter API
* @return {string} relative time like "2 minutes ago"
*/
timeAgo: function(dateString) {
var rightNow = new Date();
var then = new Date(dateString);

if ($.browser.msie) {
// IE can't parse these crazy Ruby dates
then = Date.parse(dateString.replace(/( \+)/, ' UTC$1'));
}

var diff = rightNow - then;

var second = 1000,
minute = second * 60,
hour = minute * 60,
day = hour * 24,
week = day * 7;

if (isNaN(diff) || diff < 0) {
return ""; // return blank string if unknown
}

if (diff < second * 2) {
// within 2 seconds
return "right now";
}

if (diff < minute) {
return Math.floor(diff / second) + " seconds ago";
}

if (diff < minute * 2) {
return "about 1 minute ago";
}

if (diff < hour) {
return Math.floor(diff / minute) + " minutes ago";
}

if (diff < hour * 2) {

To load the latest three tweets from a particular twitter account.

I am trying to use newsticker.js (http://www.garethhardy.com/Shine/wp-content/themes/Shine%202/jquery.newsticker.js) to only display one at a time, and fade between different the three tweets.

However, this is not working, it is working on any normal UL's but not these created using javascript.

The page in question is at http://www.garethhardy.com/Shine/

Thanks in advance for any help guys.

Dan
