Twitter 'feeds' suffering update period varies wildly

Hi there.

I follow a number of twitter handles in Newsblur - love this feature BTW.

However, I’m counting on reasonably timely updates to these “feeds” in Newsblur, but am observing that updates are anything but consistent.

During the day here in Australia (GMT+11) I typically notice prompt updates to the twitter handles I follow. However, during the night there is routinely massive delays in updates to these “feeds”. Delays between twitter posts and them appearing in my Newsblur feed can be as large at 6 to 8 hours.

Is this by design, or is it a fault or is it a server load issue?

I really would appreciate more consistent and frequent updates.

Thanks in advance.
