Overview: Version 1.1 of the Twitter API

Various authors, Twitter, Sept 06, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Interesting. Twitter APIs are dropping support for XML (specifically, RSS and Atom) and focusing its efforts on JSON support only. There are good reasons for this - JSON is a lot easier to work with and can be imported without parsing into remote applications. I've commented in the past that XML will in the long term be replaced by JSON. This is confirmation of that trend. But now we need to turn our attention to JSON discovery and consumption - there isn't a JSON feed network the way there is for RSS.
