Nu-gems – My First Website

I first delved into the world of web design when I was around 20. I downloaded and printed the entire HTML 4 specs which was the equivalent of both printing and reading the bible! The printer never worked the same again after that! Fast forward a few years with the addition of children I decided to give it another bash. At first I designed static websites locally on my computer ranging from a comedy store, as I like a laugh, to a designer sunglasses website, which was heavily influenced by selling cheap sunglasses on Ebay.

For WordPress users you should use WordPress – Display your Cached Tweets using PHP and OAuth or my new plugin.

Create a Twitter App For The New API

As you may, or may not know, Twitter are going to depreciate version 1 of their API next March. What does this mean to you? If you currently parse the Json file to display your tweets you will no longer be able to have access unless you use the authentication features. Why authentication? Various reasons I assume to limit users from making unnecessary calls to the API, Security reasons. How do I go about it? Well now you will have to create a Twitter App then use a form of authentication to make the API call.
