Hackpact 2009/09/#5: Embryonic web apps with Twitter and Django


I've long wanted to realize a couple of conceptual ideas relating to Twitter as a platform for formal text games. So, today's hackpact time (notably, the first session on a weekend) was spent getting to grips with @henriklied's fine django-twitter-oauth code, which allows a web app to be wrapped around Twitter's native authentication - thus enabling web apps that play around with the content of other people's friend feeds without requiring them to hand over their credentials. Neat.
