@Twitter’s Crap Sandwich

Marco Arment: “Oh, and one more thing: formerly-xAuth apps that need DM access have only 12 days to build this completely new login interface, test it, and release a new version β€” and, for iOS and Mac App Store apps, get it approved β€” before their existing apps start being denied access to DMs and probably display confusing and incorrect error messages, since the developers could never have foreseen this condition.”

And the topper to this crap sandwich is Twitter doesn’t have to implement this for their clients, just third parties.

I feel really bad for people, like Iconfactory, that got Lodsys’d and this news, all in the same week.
