I never knew that asking questions would be considered "whining".
Twitter has never officially stated that OAuth is in "production" like they announce other features (like Lists). Now they seem to be telling developers to start moving to OAuth. You state to "don't" use it. It doesn't look like we will have much of a choice soon. Twitter is recommending third-parties move to OAuth. Looks like it won't be long before basic auth is depreciated. On Tue, Dec 1, 2009 at 10:17 AM, Duane Roelands <duane.roela...@gmail.com>wrote: > Use it or don't, and own your decision. It works.
