I like the design, it's very clean and simple :slight_smile:

One thing you could add is a small waiting indicator in the collection tab. When one chooses an artist, there can be a small delay (~1-2 sec) during which nothing is displayed on the frame. Indicating that there are some computations running would improve the user experience in my opinion. You could take a look at shinycssloaders or waiter for example.

On a different note, I noticed that nothing is displayed if I choose "djnavarro". It happens only for this choice. Just wondering if it is also the case for you.

Well done!

Thank you!

Unfortunately due to how I loaded in tweets, shinycssloaders won't work. But I do have a workaround that will go live in the next day or so. Thanks for the suggestion!

Danielle (djnavarro) seems to have deleted or deactivated her account so her tweets aren't appearing. I don't know enough (or truly anything) about Javascript to be able to modify the twitter widget to return a message if the tweets are deleted. So it'll have to appear as permanently loading for now.
