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: twitter reducing spam, but wait, there’s a catch!

I do a lot of twittering if that’s even a word. if it is not, well it is now. A recent thing came to light regarding a certain app and twitter. Basically that app can have nothing to do with twitter in the way it sends out messages. That can be good for wearing out spam, how ever I use social oomph to broadcast direct messages to all of my followers which can be a potential spam flag. Not good if all I’m sending out is a happy holidays and have a safe and happy new year, or check out my album, r product or what not. Here is the legaleeze version of this agreement between gtwitter and this company.

Under the terms of the settlement, the owners and employees of TweetAdder agree not to take part in “creating, developing, manufacturing, adapting, modifying, making available, trafficking in, using, disclosing, selling, licensing, distributing (with or without monetary charge), updating, providing costumer support for, or offering for use, sale, license, or distribution (with or without monetary charge), any software or technology designed for use in connection with Twitter’s service.”

so will social oomph’s ability to direct message all followers or a select group also get the ax? I guess time will tell. Here is a link to the full blog post below.

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?
