You ever find yourself in the position where Twitter Tools no longer updates anymore?
The information is aged, old, ancient – Infact, even if you blow away the tweets displayed, the details on your widget do not seem to go away?
One way to get rid of the tweets it has cached are by dropping your wp_ak_twitter database.
That will result in clearing out the data in the database and in the sidebar, but it may not resolve your ability to actually update and receive tweets.
After I dropped the database, it took a considerable amount of time, but -eventually- it started actually pulling updates from Twitter as a whole – So good luck to you others out there, and hopefully you don’t have to drop your database like I had to!
