Maybe a modification of apeatling's group Twitter extension. Or maybe this is just a subset of #404

Twitter's API has changed over the years so that you have to be authenticated to make certain kinds of requests, and those requests are subject to rather arbitrary rate limitations. They want people to use their Embedded Timeline tool instead, which is what I've opted to do here. To have more customization, I'd have to refactor to use the proper API, but that would take lots of work because I"d need to implement caching and all sorts of odd stuff to avoid hitting rate limits.
