Your TweetsWind Tag Needs Replacing

March 5, 2013

As the specification of the Twitter API has recently changed, it is necessary for you to replace the tag to ensure continued functionality. Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.

What you need to do

On March 5, TweetsWind migrated to a new system. As a result, you are required to regenerate and replace the existing tags. The the old tag will no longer work after Tuesday, June 11, 2013. Please refer to the following announcement from Twitter for the details.

API v1 Retirement: Final Dates

To display the widget you need to follow these simple instructions:

(1) Log in to TweetsWind with your Twitter authentication
(2) Reissue the tag
(3) Replace the tag embedded in the current page

That’s all you have to do – it should be quick and easy for you.

Extra Information & Background

To help you understand what we are doing, there are good reasons why we needed to migrate to a new system. Last year Twitter changed the specifications and guidelines of their API (Application Programming Interface). To provide a service that best utilizes Twitter data, we have to use their API which allows us to use, retrieve and display data from Twitter.

Since the API specification changed, it has been difficult for us to continue to provide Twitter widget services so we have been forced to upgrade our code, hence the need for you to change the tag. The actual difference was not that great but it required changes to the layout and content as per the new guidelines. This required us to redesign the system in line with the new terms and establish a new tag.

We apologize for this inconvenience and wish we could provide automatic tag updates but this was not a technically viable option. We will continue to improve and stabilize the service for users to take full advantage of Twitter widget using TweetsWind. We apologize to our users for any inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Thank you for your continued use of TweetsWind.
