I can confirm the issue. List API calls are broken. Here's the headers
you get:

I'd just add that we too are running into this for Socialite.app. The
omission of lists that the user is following the in /user/lists/
subscriptions.format method means we can't offer a similar experience
in-app to that found on Twitter.com

If someone's already filed a request on this with Twitter (I couldn't
see one), could they let us know here: otherwise I'll file it
myself :)

Looking to integrate lists into my application as well, and have been
beating my head into the wall trying to figure out how to get all
lists subscribed in a single call, both user created (public or
private) and subscribed to.  Right now, it seems the only way is
through multiple calls.

 Based on the description in the docs I was expecting:

 /user/lists.format to be just the lists the user created
 /user/lists/subscriptions.format to be the lists the user created +
 those they are following (as it is on twitter.com), not just the ones
 they are following

 any chance of getting a combined my lists + lists I follow (or
 changing the /subscriptions response) to eliminate the need for
 multiple API calls?

Thanks for that. It would be great to combine them and reflect

Hmm. Ok, thats is obviously fair enough, in theory. You obviously need
to test and debug something with a subset of traffic. But Lists are
operational now on twitter.com which serves millions, so it seems you
are well down that road, yet no API, no draft API methods to review
like we have for retweets, nothing. Services contact me to integrate
services they developed on top of Lists meaning they have had access
to the API for weeks, or more.

Basically, you are rolling out critical platform improvements that
many of us don't have access to. I am not sure what the point of being
a Twitter developer is if you dont give us all fair access to key
elements of the service.

You have also created a small nightmare for those us that implemented
a version of Lists/Groups that is now starting to confuse users.

Basically, from what has been going on from the bit.ly transition to
suggested users lists to preferential access to stream APIs to free
advertising/endorsements for some to now giving access to the Lists
API to selected people, I could write a book on how to not manage an
ecosystem using Twitter as the prime example.

Please please at least give us a draft API to review for Lists as you
have done for Rewteets so we can at least *plan* a transition from our
own Groups implementations, or how we will coordinate the two features
based on the API methods. You have people building services on opt of
the Lists API and pitching me to include it in Nambu, so it is
obviously a lot further along you are letting on here.

  Please respond. I am only asking.

[twitter-dev] Re: Lists API

2009-10-15 Thread Rich

I too would like to know what is going on here, some high profile
people are tweeting about lists and how they work, yet none (well
maybe none) of us have any idea how we could integrate this into our
apps yet.

Yet at the same time the ReTweet api docs have been around for a
while, they are being tested and not rolled out yet.

 Hmm. Ok, thats is obviously fair enough, in theory. You obviously need
 to test and debug something with a subset of traffic. But Lists are
 operational now on twitter.com which serves millions, so it seems you
 are well down that road, yet no API, no draft API methods to review
 like we have for retweets, nothing. Services contact me to integrate
 services they developed on top of Lists meaning they have had access
 to the API for weeks, or more.

 Basically, you are rolling out critical platform improvements that
 many of us don't have access to. I am not sure what the point of being
 a Twitter developer is if you dont give us all fair access to key
 elements of the service.
