    Official Twitter Profile widget does not display in Mac Chrome!

    As the title says, I have found that Mac OSx will not display the widget at all on Chrome and screws the page up.

    Works on FF and Safari fine (not tested on IE yet).

    I thought it was something I had done my end, but looking on google it seems this was an issue over a year ago which hasn't been resolved?

    Could someone confirm the problem on their machine? Seems strange that an official Twitter widget would have display problems on Mac Chrome.

    Lastly, if this is an ongoing issue, has anyone found a workaround to get this working on Mac Chrome?


    Forgot to add the site! : SITE


    Thanks

    You have two empty span tags in your source:

    Code:
    <a id="facebook" href="http://www.facebook.com/robert.thompson.14855"> <span></span></a>
    		
    		<a id="twitt" href="https://twitter.com/#!/r08a01t"> <span></span></a>
    Could that be the problem?

    Hi Shyflower,

    After removing the widget and re installing earlier it seems to work fine now!

    Thanks for pointing out the empty span tags though. I removed them, but there is still an issue there as the validator does not like those two lines of code.


    Thanks

    Rob
