We’re making a few changes to the way you use Twitter in the ScribbleLive back end. Twitter is rolling out a new API that requires users to log in to Twitter to interact with the Twitter API, which is how Scribble interacts with tweets.
You’re still going to be able to access all the functions you have come to know and love – including the Twitter social search, tweet and post and auto follow. The main change: users will need to be logged into a Twitter account before using any Twitter-related functions. The good news is that once you’ve logged in, you remain logged in.
Starting on Monday, March 4th, you will have to be logged in to your Twitter account before doing any of the following:
- Perform a Twitter social search in the sidebar of the write page of your event.
- Auto-follow a Twitter user on the Twitter page of your event.
- Update a Twitter avatar using the drop down menu on each post.
- Paste the url of a tweet into the post box of your event.
Once these changes are rolled out, you will be prompted to log in to your Twitter account before doing any of the above actions. Once you log in for one of these interactions, you will remain logged in for any further interactions.
