    Default Twitter API 1.1 - Consumer key now needed :/

    Twitter have now updated their API, and requests need to be authorized with a consumer key/secret etc.

    The software I'm using has been updated in light of this, I'm very impressed with the response time but I have one slight concern.

    The software allows me to enter multiple sets of keys & secrets to negate the new limits, but has no way of setting one set of keys to only be used with one account.

    If I keep making API requests for all my accounts using the current setup I am no doubt going to end up using the same set of keys across multiple accounts - is this likely to cause problems with Twitter?

    I have already emailed the software author to see if he can add the setting I require so hopefully this will be a non-issue, but I'd still like to know in case he says it can't be done.

    if the key is generated on per account basis, then it is best to use only the key for the corresponding account.

    if they key is generated on per application/software basis, then i don't see problems using the same key for multiple account. But ofcourse don't overdo it like using same key for lots of accounts..

    Found this in Twitter's developer rules:

    3. Your use of the Twitter API and Twitter Content are subject to certain limitations on access, calls, and use as set forth in the Rules, on dev.twitter.com, or as otherwise provided to you by Twitter. If Twitter believes that you have attempted to exceed or circumvent these limitations, your ability to use the Twitter API and Twitter Content may be temporarily or permanently blocked. Twitter may monitor your use of the Twitter API to improve the Twitter service and to ensure your compliance with these Rules. In order to ensure visibility and enforcement of these Rules, you may not use a single application API key for multiple use cases, and you may not use multiple application API keys for the same use case.

    This is killing me at the moment, my software has no setting to link one API key to one account and uses the keys randomly if you have added more than one. I'm having to run one account at a time to avoid suspension >:(
