i've been trying to post tweet from my client application, but it wont allow access. The access tokens are always returned null. Somewhere this morning, i read that Twitter no more allows registering new applications, maybe this has something to do with the DDoS. Whatever, my application is stuck, and cant proceed with my work until this is done.
