    jQuery Twitter Live Search Query Plugin - incoming posts disappear/reappear


    jQuery Twitter live search query feed plugin from http://www.dreamtemplate.com/dreamco...ion/tweet.html

    Here is my implementation: http://rachellesays.com/twitter-try/tweet.html

    Made it refresh every second, and commented out "Searching Twitter" text from tweet.html to get rid of weird jumps every time it refreshed.

    However, whenever a new tweet comes in, it appears for a second or two, disappears, then reappears--doing this for three times or so almost like it's flashing.

    I have a feeling the issue is in jquery.tweet.js when a new post is being appended/binded (if you look @ source code thru browser, lines 223-243, near the last third of the code).

    ANY help on how to resolve this would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!!

    it's probably does to an older fetch arriving after the updated one.
    http fetches are not done in order: some can take a while.

    one second is way too little: the old ones can stack up, and twitter is going to turn you off after a few hours of war-hammering like your doing.

    plus, i would be pissed if i realized your page sucks 500mb per day from my data plan; that's ridiculousness!
