    Question Twitter feed clone issue

    Hi,
    I have used twitterfeed.js plugin to pull 4 latest twitter feeds in HTML. I need to place single latest twitter post in sidebar other than these 4 feeds. I used following jQuery to do this. However issue is that sometimes this single twit does not appear, and I have to refresh the page and it appears correctly.
    What I did is I have cloned first of the 4 tweets and have appended the same in a div in sidebar. But this sometimes work correctly and single tweet show up and sometime it don't and I have to refresh the page.
    Can somebody tell me what is the issue and come up with new or better jQuery to achive this.
    Thanks in advance.
    My jQuery :
    $(window).load(function(){
    var firstTweet = $('#twitter-feed .twitter-article:first-child').clone();// This clones first tweet out of four tweets pulled through plugin.
    $('#twitter-feed1').append(firstTweet); // This puts first tweet in a div.
    });

    sometimes twitter is slow, wait for it.


    Code:
    $(window).load(function doit(){
    var firstTweet = $('#twitter-feed .twitter-article:first-child').clone();// This clones first tweet out of four tweets pulled through plugin.
    if(!firstTweet.length){return setTimeout( doit, 100);}
    $('#twitter-feed1').append(firstTweet); // This puts first tweet in a div.	
    });
    (changes in red)
