Third-party app developers have been hitting that Twitter API wall – hard.
And it has given rise to a new post category here at AllTwitter: the Twitter API Limit Death Watch.
Back in September Twitter released a major revision to their API guidelines for third party app developers, which – in case you didn’t hear – ruffled quite a few feathers.
The biggest stickler was a new limit on user tokens, which was set at 100,000 per third party client. This means that apps “replicating the core Twitter experience” can now support a maximum of 100,000 users before getting into trouble with Twitter. Developers were told that they had until March 2013 to comply.
Or so we thought. Because over the weekend, popular Windows Twitter app Tweetro breached these API limitations – and was immediately “crippled” by Twitter.
