Our Twellow team has been working hard on getting Twellow set up to use Twitter's OAuth system, and that support is now available on Twellow.com.
"The Twellow OAuth upgrade is a major improvement for Twellow users," Twellow's Lead Developer Matthew Daines says. "Not only is it much more secure, but it also increases the amount of interaction users can have with the Twitter universe from Twellow."
"With this version of Twellow we've added the ability to tweet directly from Twellow, so users don't need to switch between Twellow and Twitter for simple posting of updates," Daines adds. "In addition there are a few behind-the-scenes improvements in performance that should help as we continue to grow our database of Twitter profiles."
- OAuth is more secure
- OAuth provides the same access you are used to
- You can use a different password for Twellow
- Twitter access limits are increased with OAuth
- Tweet directly from Twellow
Current Twellow users can upgrade their accounts to take advantage by logging in with their Twitter screen name and password, entering a new password to be used with Twellow, clicking the "continue to Twitter" button, making sure they are logged into Twitter under the correct account, and clicking "allow".
