Over night Twitter announced that they’re cutting off free access to their API, which we depend on in all my products. They made the announcement in a vague way and with just seven days notice. I think there’s a good chance they’ll realize that this is a shitty way to do it, and will take it back, on one hand, but on the other hand, let’s get out of here now. This is not a good place to develop products. I hoped they would leave this part of their API alone, and I expected more notice, but it didn’t turn out that way. It is what it is.
A disclaimer, all of what I write here today is seat-of-pants. I don’t know how this is going to turn out, but right now I want you, if you use my products, to prepare for a complete shutdown, just in case.
