Unhappy Will Twitter for BlackBerry Be Ready for Oauth?

Please Login to Remove!

According to this PC World article, come next Tuesday, any third party Twitter apps that require a user name and password to login will no longer be usable with Twitter's service.

I sincerely hope RIM is working on a new version of their Twitter for BlackBerry app that is compatible with the Oauth login.

That article is old.
Twitter already switched to OAuth this past Tuesday.
The twitter app works fine.

Oh, yeegadz!

The reason I brought it up was because I received an email to my Twitter account mentioning it. I wonder why they waited till today to announce it.

Thanks for the reassurance.

I saw the article and did get an e-mail but have not noticed any impact with any other apps
