Yeah, Twitter has been announcing for a very long time now that their API will be shutdown and all users will have to move over to their new one.

Hi Admin,

Could you clarify when you will have the component ready?

The twitter feed access was a big selling point for clients and I need to know what to tell them.

Thanks

As a web developer, I understand that the 1.1 Twitter API requires oAuth (essentially this means that all feed requests now need to be authenticated by a Twitter username/password). It's easy to assume that you could simply use one account to authenticate all feeds however Twitter limit the number of requests per hour.

That given, for MS to authenticate everyones feeds would not be viable. I see that any update that MS are working on would require users to enter a username/password, and I'd also envisage that MS would need to cache tweet feeds in order to ensure that each user's request limits aren't exhausted. Fairly simple (although quite cumbersome) if you're just updating a single Twitter feed on a website, however I fear this is quite chunk of development for a multi-user infrastructure like a digital signage platform. That given, there's a lot of documentation available on the Twitter Developer portal and the API v1 sundown was announced about 12 months ago so developers should have had some time to update their plugins.
