Description

5 years ago
We got IRC reports that twitter integration is not working anymore. This was expected to happen at some point, after twitter announce their new API. 

We now have to:
1. Verify that this is the case (and not something failing from our side)
2. Decide whether we'll drop this functionality altogether or if we'll implement another provider.

I would like to work on this.
jbonatakis, that's great news. Are you comfortable working with the Reps.mozilla.org codebase? If so we can assign this one to you and will be glad to have the help!

I suppose the code was removed because i dont find anything about, so i dont have mentioning for that.

2. Decide whether we'll drop this functionality altogether or if we'll implement another provider.

The regular implementation after Twitter API 1.1 is to create a Twitter Application on Twitter Developer Site (https://apps.twitter.com/app/new) and make use of consumer key and secret key. There are many apps to make the work done. I mention somes that looks interesting:

* twython ->                   https://github.com/ryanmcgrath/twython
* django-twitter-oauth ->    https://github.com/ccg/django-twitter-oauth
* python-twitter ->            https://code.google.com/p/python-twitter/

Another aproach may be Pierros suggestion at 778090 for topsy. I couldnt find anything better of this. Many Features and give API (http://api.topsy.com/doc/resources/content/tweets/).

Finally there is someone who implements a js script to skip API1.1. He uses the widgets of twitter to achieve it.It is very simple and it works. I sent a mail to him for update. here[0] is a link to his page where he represents the script. 

According to above notes I think this can be implemented with a small or with zero cost.

John thank you for researching this.

From the presented solutions, the third one is exactly what we want to do, display a widget. We'll discuss next steps for this in our next reps-dev meeting and update here.

We agreed that this is low-priority so we do not plan to work on this now.

The widget part is what we need but as :agibson said we need to make sure that it respects our privacy guidelines.

Closing this one as WONTFIX since this is broken and there're no plans to fix this. I filed bug 1270084 to remove any left over code.
