How does flipboard get around the new display requirements?


#1

Hi everyone

I’ve been looking at the recent Display Requirements and have a question on how Flipboard (on the iPad) are able to display tweets the way they curretnly do so.

For those unfamiliar, Fli[board takes a users Twitter account, scrapes for links and then displays these links as rich stories within the flipboard interface.

Are they able to do this because they are not actually displaying the tweet content (but the scraped and enriched link) or is there some other special agreement with Twitter themselves?

If I were to build an app with similar functionality (e.g took a users Tweet and ran it through a service like embed.ly) how should I display content without going against the rules?
