Tweet@rama conflict with TweetDeck?

    Question

  • Started Tweet@rama on my Win8 machine. Logged into one of my Twitter accounts.

    On my Win7 machine, I start TweetDeck. The column for "Search:" on that Twitter account doesn't populate - I get the marching boxes busy graphic. This goes on for more than an hour.

    Logged off my account on Tweet@rama. Restarted TweetDeck. The "Search:" column in TweetDeck gets populated properly.

    Coincidence?

  • It does look like a coincidence. Can you repro it consistently with the same steps?

  • I think the Twitter API blocks multiple connections from different applications to the same user's twitter feed in a short space of time. I've noticed Metrotwit sometimes tells me this on Win7 if I've been using twitter on my phone whilst it's open on my pc.
