We are building a Twitter extension where we are integrating our functionality into www.twitter.com. We noticed that a new www.twitter.com UI is being rolled out and our extension has now broken. This is easy to fix. However, we would like to know in advance if these changes so we can pro-actively react and not leave our users in the cold. In this context we have two questions:
- Is there a beta.twitter,com program we can participate in?
- Is there a way for our development team to plug-in and have advance notice of these kind of changes so we can prepare?
- Also, how often does this type of change usually happen and how reliable are the html and css ids and selectors in twitter’s DOM? Needless to say, we hook on to these with our own UI elements.
Any thoughts and help will be greatly appreciated.
