"Looks like there was an error -- it can happen. If it happens again then it'll be something to worry about . But that's for the excellent report. I'll keep my eyes open. ;-)" - Dave Winer

"They all reply to the first tweet, so if you open that one, you'll see them all in-order." - Dave Winer

"People have had success with entering emoji characters in the tweet text." - Dave Winer

"A flow chart would be helpful, outlining the order in which you should do things. Also an indication of where there will be delays. An explanation of why it's good to use a test account. (I know RTFM, but there's a lot of M to read, and I focused on the parts that were on the path to getting it all working on my side of the API.) Also, I considered submitting for permission to post at the beginning but didn't because: 1. I didn't have any screen shots to show (it's a catch-22 how can I submit them if I can't develop). 2. Then I found I could post to my own timeline, so I figured I had misunderstood what the permissions were about. I have no idea what kinds of mischief you have to prevent through this API, but right now the frustration level is pretty high, having successfully done all the work to get it working, and now waiting for my users to be able to use it. I feel like the edge is evaporating while I'm waiting. I was really excited about doing the work for Happy Friends, but I'm..." - Dave Winer

"Sean, everything I post to Facebook is available to "Public" -- so I'm puzzled why you can't see them." - Dave Winer

"I see. You weren't sure if it was on Twitter or not. Hmm." - Dave Winer

"2. You get a dialog asking if you want to open the tweet. That's feedback that it was posted, no? 3. There is a preference, not set by default for that. See the Settings dialog in the menu at the right of the screen." - Dave Winer

"I want it too. :-)" - Dave Winer

"I see what you're saying. What you really mean is this -- you want to have two strings of text. One for Twitter, and one for the card." - Dave Winer

"By replacing it you are deleting it. It only has a buffer for one picture." - Dave Winer

"Did the second tweet go through? I thought Twitter would prevent a duplicate. But it's a good idea." - Dave Winer

"The quick fix is to turn emojis off for your page or all your pages. Digging into the Emojify package is something I'll only do as a last resort. I'd prefer if the author gave us a configuration option to turn it off, so we can use new versions of his software as needed." - Dave Winer

"See the update. This was actually the third problem that needed to be fixed. Two others stood in the way of this one mattering. ;-)" - Dave Winer

"Here's the gist with the correct code. https://gist.github.com/script... Dave" - Dave Winer

Re: Twitter API update_with_media - http://scripting.com/2014...
"You're right. We have solved the problem. There were actually three. This was one of them. It should have been parsedUrl.query.status. The second problem was even more egregious. dataResponse (response) was putting something that had circular recursion. So the server was taking forever to run out of memory. The third problem was easy. You have to specify a filename in the multipart form. Twitter apparently uses this filename to discern the type of the image. After these three items were fixed, the code works. ;-) I'm going to post an updated gist with the working code, to be sure no one else gets lost like I did. BTW, full credit here goes to Dan MacTough, who got on Skype and actually put up a prototype of the code on his server. It was a great experience. Dan is a champ." - Dave Winer

"It's a good suggestion, Dan asked me to do that a few minutes ago, and it didn't change anything." - Dave Winer

Re: Watched folder feature - http://fargo.io/blog...
"Got it. I worry about these things breaking. Anne, who is a friend of mine and really smart, is also really good at finding flaws in the product. ;-) I really appreciate your coming over here Jeffrey. And I'd love it if you and Anne could connect. I think there would be a lot of value in that." - Dave Winer

Re: Watched folder feature - http://fargo.io/blog...
"Jeffrey and Anne, I don't understand what the issue is. The watched folder feature is supposed to put up a dialog containing the public URL for the image in its new location. Is it not doing that?" - Dave Winer

"You do only see the new stuff. It keeps track of what the last tweet you read was for each of your friends. It's stored invisibly in the headline for the friend." - Dave Winer

"Sorry about this. I must have been farting around with the server. ;-)" - Dave Winer

"Read the Outliner Howto in the Docs menu. There's a lot more info in there." - Dave Winer
