Pages hang on platform.twitter.com

Postby tmathews » Mon Nov 08, 2010 10:15 am

I've been having intermittent issues with any page with the "Share on Twitter" link displayed loading. Anyone else experience this issue? Sometimes the pages will load after a minute, but at other times they won't load at all. I use Firefox most of the time, but it seems like it does the same in IE 8 for me as well.

It's not a constant issue and I don't know if anything can be done about it, but I thought I'd mention it just in case.

This happens to me, as well.
The browser just freezes while it waits for "platform.twitter.com"
It's taken anywhere from 1-5 minutes to just load the page from 14ers.com.

Yup.

I ran some tests today with different browsers and experienced sporadic problems with the Twitter link and its components. So, I've removed it from the site until I can find another way to provide "Share on Twitter" without this problem. I'm not sure why their components hang, but it's not something I can control.

Sorry!

Thanks, Bill. It was getting a little annoying at times, but not unbearable.
