Lying Twitter Statuses Badge to Rest ¬


When I last touched on my Twitter badge’s future, I noted that Twitter was giving us roughly six months before they shuttered v1.0 of their API which was all that was keeping my Twitter Statuses JavaScript Badge alive. They actually gave us eight months, but finally completed the API v1 retirement on June 11th 2013 and my Twitter Statuses Badge functionality ceased along with it.

The Twitter Statuses Badge was an interesting project for me, but was in dire need of some modernization which I had not had the time to give it. While I understand the want for consistency, I’m still disappointed in Twitter for their restriction of artistic freedom with the Developer Display Requirements, the other death knell for my badge.

So, today I officially lie my Twitter Statuses Badge to rest and suggest the use of the official Embedded Timelines instead.
