blog post: an interesting article on twitter jail

I just stumbled across an article about being in twitter jail and i thought I’d share it with you all. I’ve had this happen mainly because I tweeted I think it was 100 times in an hour. Normally, twitter jail lasts for 24 hours, bot fur this particular person whom I’ll link to the blog below this lasted for around 48. She even links to the 30 rules that twitter has, although I’m not sure how many people actually follow said rules as there are probably over a million twitter accounts and counting. So how do you stay out of twitter jail? Read the blog article linked in this post and feel free to comment. Have you ever been in twitter jail and what did you do to get out if it?

blog post: Changes coming in twitter’s api: a good or bad move on twitter’s part?

introduction

Recently, as of this morning, December 22, 2012, I found my twitter client yorufukurou acting a bit strangely. It would stay at 150 api calls even though my home and mentions buffer update every minute and my dms every 5. Enter the new api 101 of the twitter API coming in march. Ok. they’ve been around for 3 years and have only gotten up to version 1.1? Anyway the changes look very good on paper, how ever, I guess we will see what happens. Here is the link below.

thoughts

As you can see there are a lot of changes in the blog some of which are a bit odd like 60 api calls? Nota lot when you consider that some of us update manually.

your turn.

What are your thoughts on this change to twitter. Will it look good? What are your thoughts as a developer if you are reading this post. If you are the consumer?
