    TweetAttacks is still working, however you will have some more manual labor involved as opposed to the other tools that used the API.

    You are screwed.

    We had a twitter train with over 3k. Tweitter changed their API to Aoth. Everyone that bought into the follow train is now dead in the water.

    Ahhhh....but the smart engineer always has a backup plan :)

    It's being done as we speak with the new API. You think a change in code is going to stop me? I want to take over the world!!!!

    There are ways around everything. i worked too hard coding to gain what we have. Let them change what they want.

    This is business. you either roll with the change or go home to mommy.

    Yep, as said before, TweetAttacks is still working.

    Has always been the best IMO.

    If you built your own, you have a DB. There is a GOLD mine stored in that DB.

    Most people that this hurt were the one's that have their own thing going. Even though the API is worthless, alas, there is a MySQL DB that stores all the goodies.


    Mahahahahahahha

    yea you just might have to bite the bullet and buy one of the working bots, or wait till some one comes up with a newer version but it could be weeks and your could louse money if you are banking of twitter best keep going an invest in your business.
