Twitter is updated its API to Version 1.1 this week. In doing so, the social networking company has limited the potential output of developers who create apps for Twitter. According to the new terms, developers will need Twitter’s permission for an app that requires more than 100,000 individual user tokens.
Twitter said today that, “The 100,000 user token limit applies only to the small set of clients replicating the core Twitter experience.” But as TechCrunch points out, “Twitter isn’t particularly jazzed about supporting apps that replicate the Twitter experience, i.e. those traditional Twitter clients.”
