Will the Twitter sign-in stop working on June 1st?
Twitter is forcing all developers to change their sign in procedure by the end of this month.
Previously, Twitter and its developers could use a security protocol called “xAuth,” which basically presents two fields (user name and password) to a user when that user wants to let an application access his or her Twitter account. Mac and iOS clients Twitterrific, Tweetbot, and Hibari have been using xAuth for a clean and simple log-in. Among other things, the developer of the client application can control the look of the log-in screen.@Tim - Will we get a timely update to the Twitter sign-in on Vanilla, or do you recommend disabling at the end of the month (and how would that affect existing users?)
Now, however, Twitter is forcing all developers, by the end of the month, over to a more recently developed protocol named Oauth. Under Oauth, a user must leave a native application, launch a browser, go to Twitter, and enter his or her credentials there. Twitter than calls back and gives the application a token (a random number, essentially), which says this client has the right to respond on behalf of this user.
