Twitter Sources Not Working

On June 11th Twitter turned off its old API, including the use of RSS feeds to get twitter searches and twitter timelines.  Your Twitter sources can not be read by MyCurator because of this.  While we have been working on an update to work with their new API, this happened before we could get out the new version.  We hope to get a  new version out soon.

The new Twitter API requires the authorization of a user account to access any twitter searches or following a twitter user.  This means that you will have to create a twitter ‘application’ under your twitter account and then copy several access tokens and secret tokens to our new MyCurator update.

While we will have detailed instructions to walk you through the process, it is going to be a bit of a hassle to get everything set up to use the new Twitter API.

If any of you would like to be a beta tester for the new version that corrects the Twitter  API, please use the Contact Us form on our site to tell us.  We’ll  post any further updates to  this blog.  Thank you for your patience.
