I want to display a user's latest Tweets on a webpage while maintaining the ability to style the Tweets with custom CSS and also maintaining good page load speed.
I have managed to display the latest Tweets in 2 ways.
1. Using the [PHP Twitter library] (by Aaron Brazell). By using this method, my PHP code has to wait for a response from Twitter before my page can be completed and sent to the client. This could cause the page load time to be quite unpredictable and more than likely slow down the page load enough to be annoying to users.
I would like to know if there are any other pro's and con's to using these different methods to display a user's latest Tweets, and also if there is perhaps another solution I can look into which will enable custom CSS styling and provide good page load performance?
