  •  what I heard was...you only need the script (5+ / 0-)

    once per page...and it is already included in the twitter button...so we do not need it when we post a tweet.

    am I becoming a geek..??

    •  Ah. (4+ / 0-)

      Then I wonder if that is why it freaks out the page when you provide it again? It is trying to execute and has nothing to do?

      I looked at one of the comments in the help thread that klompie reported and there was no script at all so it is hard to know what it looked like before it rendered into a page.

      I wonder if your geeky explanation is why I can only see the prettified tweets when I look at them in a separate comment page. When I see them in a comment on an open diary, they don't work.

      Who told you all this cool geeky stuff?

        okay...actually I can't remember...I could check my database if you'd like.

        and to be completely honest...I don't even know what a script is or does.

        my guess is...a little piece of code that tells the page or browser to render any code that has "twitter" included.

          A script is programming code which does not have to be compiled ... it is just executed line by line and "does stuff". It is also capable of being malicious so my guess is that they are trying to get it under control so that you can do the cool-look tweets safely and without crashing the system. A rather fine line to walk.
