  1. I would like to have the Location dialog in my Twitter client, that also updates my location in my Twitter profile, update my current location on I see there is a relatively simple API call for that.

    However, peSHIr Tweets (my client) is not a web application, but a dedicated Windows Mobile 6 application, so general OAuth APIs that only seem to do json are not a good match at all.

    Could you also implement another format API (like plain XML instead of json)? But more importantly, could you add an API method like Twitter has called xAuth: a method I can call with a username and password supplied by a user to get a valid OAuth token (and secret) for the user connection so I can start calling OAuth methods without the full OAuth web connection protocol that’s a royal pain for desktop applications?

    Hope to hear from you.

    This comment was actually posted a few months ago but we do now have XML support in the API (simply append .xml instead of .json to requests) and also support for xAuth. The xAuth support needs to be turned on manually by us so if you’re interested in using it, get in touch!
