Flamingo Flies

All this recent Twitter API migration business has inspired me to build Flamingo – a hosted ajax service for your Twitter apps.

A lot of sites (particularly blogs) have Twitter feeds that are powered by JavaScript and based on the old API. A lot of these widgets will not be upgraded for various reasons and will soon stop working altogether. Many people don’t have the skills or resources to replace these widgets with the more advanced back end code that the new API requires. Flamingo helps front end developers by making it easy to configure and set up ajax services without knowing a server side language.

More information to follow shortly when the app goes live. Pre-register now if you’d like to be notified.


UPDATE: Twitter have demanded that I shut down Flamingo, claiming that I’m resyndicating their content. While I disagree, I won’t be arguing with them. Closure notice here.
