[twitter-dev] friends/ids JSON API

2010-10-26 Thread Alex B
Will this be updating to the snowflake id strs workaround? Currently it delivers ints in an array. I'd like to propose a flag on all JSON API calls (? ids_as_strings=true) to deliver ids as strings instead of ints. This could apply to the cursor problem we saw earlier. -- Twitter developer

It seems, though, that if I change just one of the three parameters in the streaming call, the page just continuously loads. I don't know if that's normal. Or maybe it just doesn't send the output to the screen. On 25 Okt., 22:44, Matt Harris thematthar...@twitter.com wrote: Hi Tobias, First

Re: [twitter-dev] Count hidden rows

2010-10-26 Thread Taylor Singletary
Hi Lagden, Unfortunately, our API is architected in a way that requires us to perform the pagination calculations before filtering out things like retweets. This is expected behavior. It's best to consider the count parameter as a hopeful parameter. You will get, at most, the amount you've asked

I'm not sure what sort of Verification you're looking for - however, you might want to take steps on your own end to reassure users why they're being sent to Twitter. See, for example, Favstar. http://favstar.fm/authorization/new It's the your job as an application developer to instil confidence
