I have a site where I’d like to perform an ajax POST with the contents of a as the status text. In other words, I want to make a custom Tweet Box that uses @anywhere to authenticate rather than OAuth.
The reasons I want to write a tweet box from scratch instead of using the one provided by Twitter are:
- Capture onclick events to perform additional functions (the site could be considered a Web App - the tweet the user writes should be instantly placed in a ul with some other tweets)
- Full customisability of the box (JQuery animations, @media queries etc.)
- Percentage width (!!!)
I realise that I can achieve all of these by going down the OAuth route - however, the @anywhere protocol is really cool, and getting it working this way would minimise development time greatly.
Thanks for the help!
