I am building an Adobe AiR application in which a community of users
will be tagging various URL pages. Whenever someone tags a new URL, I
need to "broadcast" that new URL to all of the users who have
installed my AiR application.
Can Twitter API help me with this?
There are a couple of issues to keep in mind.
(1) Only URL's need to be broadcast with a couple of criptic tag-id's
- so none of this would resemble a typical Twitter message that is
made up of words and sentences.
(2) The same application would need to "subscribe" to messages from a
single Twitter user, without forcing application users to create their
own individual accounts.
If not twitter, is there some other service that provides free and
reliable messaging services, as described above.
