Hey everyone, If you're on both the Twitter API Announcements and Twitter Development Talk lists you may have already seen this message.
We know some of you may still be wondering what authorization method you should be using, or switching to, in your applications. To help you decide we have put together a short overview of the authorization options available at http://dev.twitter.com/pages/auth_overview. All of the authorization methods use OAuth, they just start at a different point in the OAuth flow. Even xAuth is OAuth so you do need to understand how to sign your API calls. More information on how OAuth works and how to use it can be found at http://dev.twitter.com/pages/auth. Also, for those of you who haven't met me yet, my name is Matt Harris and I've just joined Twitter as a Developer Advocate. I'll be working with Taylor, Raffi and the rest of the team at Twitter helping get as much information to you as we can and listening to your questions and comments as you create cool applications that integrate with Twitter. If you want to get ahold of me you can use this Google Group or find me on Twitter as @themattharris. I'll also be out and about at various events including Google IO later this month. Best, Matt Matt Harris Developer Advocate, Twitter http://twitter.com/themattharris
