The final stages of the transition from v1 to v1.1 of Twitter's API went fully complete 11th June 2013, however there's still a fair few people using v1 of the Twitter API and moaning that it's not working. Well obviously it's not going to work now as it's been totally switched off.
However updating to use v1.1 of the API is very simple.
Now before I start rambling on about how you can do things, I would like to point out that I am using Abraham Williams' Twitter OAuth class for this post (as it's the first and main one I've came... [read more]
Are you seeing that you've got a DM ("Direct Message") on Twitter, yet when you check it there's nothing there? Or when you go to re-read one of your DM's it's no longer there? Well there's one reason as to why this will happen that not many know about.
The Sender Deleted The Message Their End
Twitter works much different to how other websites internal messaging systems work. Normally if you delete the messages in your inbox, then they just go from your side. However with Twitter, the DM also removes it from the other... [read more]
About 25 minutes ago Twitter decided to not work (and still isn't at the time of posting this) - this is more than likely because they're fully applying that update I moaned about earlier throughout the site. Not sure why they need to take this much time as they've surely got test servers to put it on before making it live - luckily for me though, I was able to still use Twitter during these problems because I've obviously made myself a few Twitter-based web apps that process the stuff via Twitter's API (which was thankfully, untouched).
However, I also have... [read more]
Twitter has decided to change the way tweets are shown on your feed and even though it's only been about an hour since I've started seeing this change, they're already frustrating and annoying me.
What they've done is made it so if anyone you follow replies to someone elses tweet that you follow, then it automatically bunches the replies together (then adds a little blue counter too if there's more). They styled the text of the replies to be about a pixel smaller than the normal font so there's not really much difference in the sizing -... [read more]
Well my goodness, that didn't take long. I was thinking it'd be tomorrow that the next account would be compromised, however it's recently happened again... this time BET (Black Entertainment Television) has been compromised and had their profile picture changed to the MTV logo.
And also MTV's official Twitter account has also been compromised too, with their name being changed to "HACKED MTV!".
This is crazy... three blue badged accounts so far this evening... stay tuned for more.
Thank you so much!...

There is a major bug in this. It simply stalls and won't let me move to the 'select where to save them' part after discovering all the images. 1/10 of accounts I enter in work, rather randomly ...
