Wasn’t exactly sure what category to put this in, hopefully this is correct:
I have a little toy application I made just for fun to allow “longer tweets” aka a link to a post on a site I run. It’s just for fun, I don’t make anything off it, just wanted to write a ruby app and play with the twitter api.
Today I find that my application is no longer working, and when I go to look at my application settings, the application is simply missing… I’m certain it’s the correct user, I’ve tried the only other use I use for personal twitter stuff, and it isn’t there either.
Anyway, I just created a new one (though I had to use a new name, it said the old one is taken…) but I cannot seem to post on behalf of a user (using the ruby twitter gem), though I can post as myself just fine; but the more interesting thing is while I was playing around with it trying to make it work again, in the application details tab, the “Your access token” section disappeared as well! It required I recreate it (though it still won’t let me post on behalf of another user).
So, my real questions are: what happened to my original application - am I violating some policy and having stuff silently deleted? I don’t intend to.
