Peter Denton, I have a corporate website and I would like to show Twitter feeds of my selected keywords (Theme Based). For that I would like to use API which get me the feeds directly..without creating any Twitter account, just like anonymous user..my question is, will Twitter consider it as SPAM..
Or Shall I follow 1. Get the feed or /statuses/user_timeline without authentication at a rate up to 150 times per hour and store the tweets in a database. Then serve tweets to your web page from the database. Thanks for any help on this. On Jan 12, 9:15 am, Peter Denton <petermden...@gmail.com> wrote: > also, check out Twitter Widgets.
