Any chance of changing it so that geekzone uses twitter properly rather than taking our username and password.

I often change the password for it since I use it on untrusted computers and that means I have to update it here. If it was an authorized app then it would not be an issue.

When we developed the Twitter integration the only way of doing it was the API authentication - Twitter OAuth didn't come until *AFTER* we had it done. It's in the plans, but not for this week.

I would much rather see OAUTH used as well.




It looks like I'm using an adblocker. I should consider whitelisting Geekzone in my adblocker or a subscription. The Quick Reply box will appear for me when Geekzone is whitelisted. Hooray for me! If I want to reply to this topic I should click on Compose Reply.
