WordPress users are "a complete different beast" than desktop users. Even if you use some easy install process like Dreamhost "One Click Install", you still need to know where your WordPress install is, unpack and install in the proper directory. Most desktop users don't want that hassle; the application that "works" is the one that they click the icon and it just works. Or one that they can just keep pressing next, next, next, ok. If you ask them to register their apps with the proper configurations on Twitter site (and, as far as I remember, the registration page defaults to browser apps and not desktop apps), they will believe your app is "too hard to use" and will take one that doesn't ask them so many things, even if their real security is not even slightly better. -- Julio Biason <julio.bia...@gmail.com> Twitter: http://twitter.com/juliobiason -- 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
