Ryan, Many thanks for the continued updates. You guys are handling this far better than most would.
Regarding OAuth: I'm also having difficulty updating OAuth app properties on the website -- the update form continues to return a "400 Bad Request" when it's submitted. Obviously not a huge priority issue, since OAuth behavior itself is not working well, but just wanted to get it on your list. Thanks again, and good luck to the team. -Clay @claylo On Aug 9, 10:34 am, Ryan Sarver <rsar...@twitter.com> wrote: > I wanted to send an update to everyone who is monitoring this thread and > keep you abreast of where we stand. > First of all, the attack is still on going.
