I'm using the "official" twitter feed widget, and I just noticed in Firefox's network inspector that it's adding +- 220 kB of data to my site at load time. 100 kB is the "widgets.js" file, the other 100 kB is a json file (which weirdly enough is only 9kB when I copy the URL and download it from the address bar??).
Any suggestion for reducing those file sizes? Apart from custom coding a RSS feed extractor thingy which wouldn't depend on their widgets.js?
I'm just trying to skim some fat for faster load times :)
