Twitter Series: #1 Using Twitter API v1.1

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]

Annoying Twitter Web Update 3rd June

Twitter Update

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).
