Following TweetDeck founder Iain Dodsworth’s departure from Twitter, the social giant has given TweetDeck a web-based refresh.
The writing was definitely in the Twitter Cards, as Twitter’s shuttering of TweetDeck’s mobile apps indicated its interest in focusing on the TweetDeck web experience.
Read on for a run-through of the new TweetDeck features and aesthetic.
This week, Twitter rolled out updates to its Android and iPhone apps that make mobile tweeting more seamless than ever.
Here’s a quick rundown of the mobile updates.
Today’s most predictable news: Twitter has finally rolled out two-step authentication.
After another recent round of high-profile hacks, apparently Twitter saw the light. And by “light,” I mean the dead-obvious value of offering users a two-step secure login that’s been available on Google, Facebook, and more platforms for months now.
In March, Twitter announced via its developer blog that its API v1 would officially retire on Tuesday, May 7, 2013.
Well, developers are getting a reprieve – Twitter has delayed the API 1 shutdown until June 11.
Twitter might soon start to flag tweets that contain links to material deemed inappropriate or not safe for work.
There’s a new field within Twitter’s API that is titled “possibly_sensitive” that will only surface when any URL contained in a tweet links to content that has been defined as ‘sensitive’.
So here’s the big question: who gets to make that definition?
Yesterday we wrote about Twitter’s new developer website, which the company has launched because they needed “a new home to support the Twitter community better”, although cynics might say it has more to do with amending Twitter’s attitude towards the developer community in recent months.
Indeed, matters have got serious enough that they’re actually under investigation by the FTC.
Which makes the launch of this new site a very smart move by Twitter, as their developer community, frustrated as it might be, shows no signs of slowing down.
In the last few days Twitter has launched an official YouTube channel for their API team, which opens with a collection of videos from the recent Devnest conference, including talks from Dick Costolo, Ryan Sarver, Quora, Klout and The Guardian newspaper.
In an email to Twitter’s Development Talk mailing list, developer manager Jason Costa has promised more content, and he has reached out to developers for their thoughts on what they’d like to see featured.
