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.

Twitter Statuses Badge 0.7.2 Released and a Few Words on its Future

In mid-August, Twitter announced there would be big changes coming in v1.1 of their API which they then released at the beginning of September (officially deprecating the v1.0 of their API). Well, three days ago my Twitter Statuses JavaScript Badge stopped working on all my sites and everyone else’s that uses it too.

Twitter Statuses Badge v0.6 Released

Just over a year ago (as my schedule seems to be) I released an update to my Twitter Statuses JavaScript Badge. Within two days I had further updates, including variables to override the name of the DIV element, hide the user’s icon, etc., ready to go, but I put it on the back burner as I was unhappy with the poor name-spacing.

Vehiculr.com for Sale

I dislike domain squatting and I didn’t use this domain as planned, so I’m selling vehiculr.com and its matching Google/Gmail & Twitter accounts. I’m only really looking to recover registration & listing fees, but a few extra dollars would certainly help.

Automating Countdown Tweets with Bash

Modern Warfare 2 will be out in a few days, so I felt @cowardswayout should count down to the release day. I could spend a few minutes at some point during each of the next few days—assuming I can remember to—posting a nearly-the-same message to Twitter or I could automate it. Yeah, better automate.

Another Twitter Statuses Badge Update

First I wait nearly two years for an update and then only a matter of days. I had actually intended to release this update nearly immediately after the last update, but twitter was having some issues when I was attempting to complete my testing. This weekend’s testing was successful, so here’s the latest update to my Twitter Statuses Badge.

Vermont Twitter Folks

Yesterday Twitter added the ability to search for people so I set out to find out who else in Vermont is twittering away. A quick search for either "Vermont" or "VT" yields roughly 120 people (combined) which is a little better than I had expected. Oddly enough, the Vermont Teddy Bear Company is the only other twitterer that calls the Shelburne area home, but they have four different accounts that have only been updated once (and not for the past couple months, at that).

Twitter as my global status message

When John Gruber mentioned Twitter a couple weeks ago, saying, ”[his] spidey sense says Twitter is going to be one of those ‘everyone’s using it’ big deals pretty soon,” I went straight over to twitter.com to see what it was all about.
