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


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.

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?
