iOS5 System Twitter accounts & need for easy RWDM upgrade path


Thanks to the new rules of RWDM, the level of degradation of our user’s first login experience is extensive.

Everything from the clunky looking authorize page that seems to take forever to load, to the blatant marketing and almost “in your face” attempt to get our users to download the official client at every turn.

Basically, it’s almost guaranteed to frustrate even our loyal users. Imagine them having to “re-authorize” every single one of their accounts.

We may have to live with it, but we hope there can be consideration for better ways to accomplish this.

We’ve already had complaints “your app doesn’t load dm’s” - but that’s because we invited them and guided them through the token upgrade - but something went amiss.


That bad is it?
