With New API, Twitter Attempts to Kill Autofollow Apps
Stay N' Alive
JUNE 21, 2013
Just this last week Twitter retired their long-lived 1.0 API for developers. This API was the first "versioned" release, a breath of fresh air in many ways for developers that were tired of API updates breaking their code. On June 11th, Twitter forced all devs to upgrade to their 1.1 API however, breaking many developers'' apps in the process ( mine included ). This, I''m sure, is freeing up all kinds of resources and money on Twitter''s servers.
