Twitter tightens the screws on third party apps. It has been coming for awhile. Can’t help but wish app.net or other alternatives to twitter had become more adopted alternatives.
Busy day off work. Nor rocking Google WiFi at home after our Asus router of some 7+ years service developed an issue serving LAN traffic. Wow WiFi connections are much quicker and not having to change router as we move around the house is awesome.
