Twitter Roll Out

Twitter currently has only rolled out about half of their planned updates, namely just requiring scripts that access their API to use “OAuth” . The second part will be the move to t.co URL wrapping which will come sometime in the next couple of months (although a lucky few may already have this function). Therefore, we expect once again an interruption to our main mobile news feed as we make the adjustment to our scripts once the second update is rolled out. Currently we are using tinyurl for url wrapping which will be changing to twitters t.co url wrapping. However, you will still be able to use other url wrapping methods such as tinyurl and bit.ly. The latest Twitter API announcements can be found here.
