API Change Can Cause Blackouts Twitter Today

The Twitter changes the rules of the game regarding the API, which can cause a real blackout between applications, clients and plugins that make use of the earlier version of the technology, the API 1.0. This move was expected since August last year when the microblogging announced the changes. Developers have had several months to adapt the applications.

Understanding these changes in the new structure of the most popular microblogging world is to understand the dance of apps that have happened in recent months. Since the implementation of the new version (1.1) of its API, which is the set of parameters for a interact app with Twitter, all created apps now have a limited number of copies, calledtokens. The ceiling is 100 thousand copies per app. Apps that before the announcement came this limit have twice the capacity. Above this, Twitter will examine case by case.

Thus, the service wants to spread the platform itself, with official applications in the most diverse systems. Remember that the “sponsored tweets” do not appear in third-party apps. Therefore, increasing the user base “official” become the most cost-effective service thanks to the support of advertisers.

Side effects of this are already perceived since the announcement. With limited demand, some apps out for the collection of prices in order to reduce the demand and remain within the tokens limit set by Twitter. Hence the reason to find the Falcon Pro (which has reached the quota of 100,000 tokens) for the absurd price of R $ 260.19 and Tweetbot for Mac for $ 20 (about 40 reais).

In Windows 8, the situation is even worse. How is a new platform, there is little variety of apps. Find dubious quality apps costing up to 10 dollars! As if it were not enough, Twitter itself has not officially arrived yet in the system. It has apps with different names, but with exactly the same structure, created by the same developers.

We also expect a set of more homogeneous apps in their functions and appearances. From now on, the visual guidelines gain rule character that requires approval of Twitter itself. There will be a wide range of limits in communication between apps and Twitter 15 requests to update the timeline each 15 minute period and 180 requests a search for each period of 15 minutes, for example.

The API old test blackouts happen for the first time today. So if your Twitter stop working between 14h and 15h, do not be surprised. It is also likely that the microblogging report the error 410.

Despite all the changes, some developers follow with their normal development plans, such as Tweetbot or the excellent Carbon for Android. Already TweetDeck, alternative app maintained by Twitter itself, croaked in mobile applications. Continued on the web.
