Twitter API v1.1 Migration Caused Mass Errors in Free Social Tools

twitter_api_v1_deprecated

Yesterday Twitter officially announced retirement of the API v1.

Exploring developers forums shows that lots of third party services owners are unhappy with the new API limitations and Twitter’s requirement for applications to authenticate all the requests. At the same time Twitter representatives report: most of the valuable services that utilizes the API, successfully migrated their stuff.

Quick overview of the most mentioned Twitter tools gives reason to doubt in this statement.

After implementing API v1.1 for our Social Media Search tool Social Buzz, we collected information about other Free tools and shortly ended up with a list of 20 interesting tools that seemed to be affected by the Twitter API migration.
