Hi Everyone,

Just a quick heads up. Twitter will soon be retiring it’s 1.0 API. They’ve announced that this will happen on the 5th of March. You can read more about it here.

If you have an item with a Twitter feed, now is a good time to start updating your item to the new 1.1 API.

Twitter is a common feature among files and as a result the update queue may become busy. Please be patient if this occurs and we encourage you to update your items as soon as possible. :)

Also, remember that Twitter will soon be enforcing their rather strict display guidelines too, which means whenever you display a Tweet or a Timeline, it needs to adhere to their requirements.

More information about the display requirements can be found here: https://dev.twitter.com/terms/display-requirements and confirmation from a Twitter employee that it applies to ALL display is here: https://dev.twitter.com/discussions/15327

Key point to note is that they will provide warnings before revoking API access, which is a good thing, so at least you get warned there.

@phpdude, so what does this mean for existing Twitter widgets? Do we, as authors, need to update the styling on all themes that contain the Twitter widget?

Let me get this clear: This basically means that every design deviating from the standard embedded timeline style is against the rules?

I’m wondering about this as well. They will contact the owner if it doesn’t comply to their formatting (i.e. our buyers, and they will, in turn, contact us) : “Our platform operations team reaches out to developers and sites that are non-compliant with guidelines—make sure that the contact information associated with applications and accounts used with the API or widgets are up to date”

Edit : I don’t think I’ve seen any themes (or maybe more than 90% of them) having a Twitter timeline design which is compliant to their guidelines. I think a lot of people will be dropping support for it instead.

Exactly, I’m not too sure what to do now before we can get some clarity. If they are drastic changes, perhaps a plugin would be better.
