I think it’s humorous that there is anger over the deactivation of Twitter’s streaming API, but Micro.blog can’t say “Hey come over here!” because it doesn’t even have a streaming API.
To install Tweetie 2.0 I had to downgrade my iPad 2 to iOS 6, install an old version of iTunes, use Charles Proxy to intercept iTunes’ http requests and switch the version. Fun Fact: the official twitter app still has the bundle id “com.atebits.Tweetie2”.
I’m doing some UX research work with Tweetie. I was able to get it to work (albeit with very frequent crashes) with the old Twitter-api.wordpress.com API root.
Do you folks think it’s still worth it to learn Objective-C? Ignoring all job prospects, and I’m already familiar with Swift.
Me: “Let’s look at the old Micron source code again, it maybe wasn’t that big of an app, maybe you can fix it.”
What…and he wants to sell…gear.
