After weeks of twitter import working, it has broken again... and now even the backup I use (Twitter Feed) has broken too. Is this normal, or is this due to Twitter's 100K tokens policy?
Twitter's shutting down the version of the API that is in current use by Friendfeed, afaik. So that may be permanent. The 100k tokens policy probably wouldn't apply to Friendfeed, they probably have access to somewhere around 300k tokens. https://dev.twitter.com/blog... - NOT THE CRICKET
Oh crap, the API change. Damn. I wonder what the likelihood of Friendfeed updating its code to use v 1.1 is. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
Probably zero. They're barely doing maintenance, never mind implementing new changes. - Bill Mason
There's a hack you can use: Instead of importing a twitter feed, you can use a "custom RSS" feed, and use this url: http://api.twitter.com/1... (where xxx is your screen name). This worked for me just now. - Stephen Mack
The on again off again problems has led people to use advanced tweets - does that still work? - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Laura: Sadly, while it works for existing users, it's at its follow limit, so no new users can sign up. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I thought I read that RSS feeds are going away when API 1.0 is sunsetted. Maybe don't quote me on that. - Bill Mason
Oh I hope not :( - Stephen Mack from iPhone
"Consequently, we've decided to discontinue support for XML, Atom, and RSS, which are infrequently used today." https://dev.twitter.com/docs... - Bill Mason
That's awful. :( - Stephen Mack from iPhone
All right, so what recourse will we have? Pipes? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Beats me. - Bill Mason
XML, Atom and RSS are infrequently used??! Whoa. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Event Horizon. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
@Stephen - I just signed up for Advanced Tweets today and it worked for me... - Andrew C (✔)
What's the deal with so many people not getting RSS, Atom and XML? Do they also believe that HTML is going to disappear? Weird stuff. - Sean McBride
One gets the impression that opponents of RSS, Atom and similar markup systems are deliberately trying to destroy the connectivity and productivity of the Internet. - Sean McBride
All Internet services should be easily able to communicate and share information with all other Internet services. - Sean McBride
And what are Friendfeed going to do about the Twitter API upgrade? - Dave Levy
Oddly, my yahoo pipe that reads from twitter RSS is still working without issue as long as I refresh it manually... So only 20 at a time. :( - Andy Bakun
And my yahoo pipe stopped working. Twitter gives it 400 (Bad Request). I can still request the RSS feed from my home though. - Andy Bakun
Dave, they are going to do nothing. Twitter and Google Reader will become just more dead icons in the list "all 58 services" supported, just like the old Wakoopa, TipJoy, Backtype, iLike, Magnolia icons that you still see in the list. - April Russo
Backtype kinda imploded their own service; it's not like they changed an API and Friendfeed didn't update. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
Backtype was acquired by Twitter, for their Hadoop tooling and analytics. Twitter shut it down. - NOT THE CRICKET
How hard would it be to write our own Twitter-to-RSS service to use as a custom RSS option for FF? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Technically probably not hard, but still beyond me. But I took a look at the Twitter dev terms of service, and I think that kind of thing might be against their rules. - Andrew C (✔)
Advanced Tweets kind of works. I don't think it's against their terms if they make any provision of ownership to the author (the questionable case would be retweets). And yeah, it's not hard, just kind of costly. - NOT THE CRICKET
Thanks @Stephen Your custom feed trick worked great. Twitter feeds importing into my FriendFeed again. - Mitchell Tsai
My yahoo pipe started working again, although I have to manually invoke it. - Andy Bakun

"Myriad has demonstrated the appropriately-named Dalvik Turbo engine for us here at MWC, claiming performance improvements of up to two or three times depending on the app -- and from the spinning 3D cube we saw running on a pair of Android Dev Phone 2s, we don't doubt it. Of course, the ADP2 is an ARM11-based phone, which means that the new runtime could effectively breathe new life into low- to midrange chipsets and let them enjoy some of the spoils usually reserved for high-end devices." - LANjackal from Bookmarklet
Hmm. "Unfortunately, you won't be able to buy, download, and install Dalvik Pro yourself; Myriad is instead positioning it as a differentiator for carriers and manufacturers -- not unlike Sense or TouchWiz -- that would allow them to tout improved app performance across their Android lineup versus competitors'." - Joe Bonner
IMO that's a lot better than if it were a paid app - LANjackal from IM
How does it fragment the market if it's compatible with the existing Dalvik? - LANjackal from IM
