Twitter Change API

By Ipro Staff

 Websites with a Twitter feed scrolling on the right navigation bar might have experienced an error message in late June. Joe Beane, IProduction’s customer service specialist, found the reason: Twitter moved to API v1.1.  The API is what communicates with IProduction to get data, displays, preferences, and feeds. Since Twitter updated to a newer version, Michelle Heil, professional services specialist, made the changes to get the Twitter feeds chirping once again.

Twitter is a short broadcasting tool where the users are limited to 140 characters for each message, or “tweet.” As of March 2013, Twitter said more than 200 million people use their service to send around 400 million tweets per day.
