I was skeptical too, I thought the display requirements were only meant for the more high class sites and for TV, but according to this discussion with a Twitter employee, they say it’s for everything. https://dev.twitter.com/discussions/15327

Yes, the display requirements apply to all scenarios in which Tweets and Twitter content are shown

This means all kind of widgets will need to be adjusted to coincide with the guidelines, but it’s not really a massive deal because all the jQuery or other JS based plugins will break when they switch to v1.1 of the API.

You need to generate OAuth signature before you can request for user_timeline. Considering those are public information, I’m not sure why are we forced to use OAuth for it.

I personally think that the current changes (new API + display guidelines) seems to push people into using their own embedded timeline. After all, the display guidelines will somehow make your ‘custom timeline’ look 90% like theirs and there is no rate limit for their own timeline widget.

This is just sad, their display requirements ruin any chance of creativity. Bye, bye Twitter widgets from us too.

Still researching this, but it seems like usability is a little clunky for the Theme customer. If you create a custom twitter “widget”, the Theme customer still needs to create a new “application” on the twitter website:

https://dev.twitter.com/apps

Then copy and paste FIVE different pieces of information in the widget:

1. Twitter Application Consumer Key

2. Twitter Application Consumer Secret

3. Account Access Token

4. Account Access Token Secret

5. Twitter Feed Screen Name

I’m thinking it just might be easier to get rid of the any custom twitter widgets and just paste a twitter timeline in a text widget:

https://dev.twitter.com/docs/embedded-timelines

Unless I’m missing something?
