Using Android 2.1 on HTC Legend. Despite numerous updates over a week or more, one old tweet has remained at the top of the list. Even with updates this old tweet has remained first on the list and has always claimed to be from several minutes ago. This problem started to occur during a normal update of the feed using the most recent version of the app.

Phone: Motorola Milestone OS: Android 2.1 Issue: I set the refresh interval to every 15 minutes but it doesn't refresh automatically, both in the widget and apps.  I have set my phone's auto sync to "off".  Does it matter??? Facebook app seems to be able to update itself even though I have the auto sync as "off"
