I have a few questions about the API 1.1 display requirements
As a design\digital agency, we’ve created a number of custom designed twitter feeds on our client websites with the basic user_timeline which often consist of the twitter logo and latest tweet only - in many cases we have felt it would look too cluttered otherwise.
Can I confirm that from March 2013 we will have to display all the below information anywhere where twitter feeds are integrated into our websites?
Author avatar, username, actions (re-tweet, reply, favorite), correct linking timestamp etc etc as per https://dev.twitter.com/terms/display-requirements
How will this be enforced and will developers receive any sort of notice that display requirements have been broken or will the app\token just cease to work?
Some of the best creative uses of integrated feeds I’ve seen would not work so well if tweet appearances have to be standardized to this extend, such as the samples in the following: http://www.sitepoint.com/integrate-twitter-into-web-design/
