What I find great about the growing prevalence of social interfaces is that I don’t have to focus predominately on coding an interface and with so many clients my users can interact with in whatever way is most appropriate, i.e. from a mobile phone or a desktop client.
Unfortunately, the standard python-twitter library doesn’t readily run under GAE because of some library issues. Originally, I was looking at providing some code changes for it but it’s a spiderweb of more abstractions then I think the problem deserves.
We all know about twitter’s growing popularity so I thought I’d share my version as well in case it proved helpful to anyone. Twitter provides a great mechanism to decouple your interface from your backend code and I hope to see many more smart systems to come!
