API Update : Archive / Notebook Create


As we continue to implement OAuth and battle SPAM we are making an important update to the /notebook/create API.

In addition to the CREATED_BY field, we also ask developers to include the numeric USER_ID of the user who is making the call.  This should be a valid user screen name / user id combo.

This will help us in the future to control edits on archives, as well as attack spam issues when the CREATED_BY (screen_name) and USER_ID don’t match.

Update also reflected at http://twapperkeeper.com/api.php
