My linkblogging tool, Radio2, has a connection with Twitter. You can establish a link between your feed and Twitter so that every item in your feed is also posted to Twitter.
Here’s a screen shot. To create the connection you click on the blue bird. That starts an OAuth conversation where the user gives Radio2 permission to post to his or her Twitter account.
I’ve been hearing, peripherally, that some part of the old Twitter API is about to be turned off, or maybe has already been turned off. I can’t pay full attention because it’s a small feature, used by just a few people, and I have my attention elsewhere.
Late last night I tried clicking on the blue bird, and sure enough there appears to be some breakage. Twitter complains that there is “no request token for this page.” Perhaps they changed something in their OAuth implementation?
I should investigate.
If you have any clues, please post a comment.
