As has been said time and time again, "proprietary" is not a solution for this, as any non-hosted app using OAuth can have the keys extracted from it. Additionally, some of us would like to write Free or Open Source applications, that people can use on their own machines, without requiring them to register as Twitter developers. It used to be possible to do this. <sigh> j. -- Twitter developer documentation and resources: http://dev.twitter.com/doc API updates via Twitter: http://twitter.com/twitterapi Issues/Enhancements Tracker: http://code.google.com/p/twitter-api/issues/list Change your membership to this group: http://groups.google.com/group/twitter-development-talk?hl=en
