TwitterCounter: the API and the Mint Pepper

TwitterCounter: the API and the Mint Pepper

November 25th, 2008 – 7 Comments

As you know I’m a big fan of TwitterCounter, and Boris, its creator and founder is one of the few Dutch entrepreneurs I’m actually a fan of, as he really seems to get the “new” web.

I emailed him last week, asking why TwitterCounter didn’t have an API, and we started talking about what an API should do. He started developing it, showed me some code, and then I offered him to develop the API myself. So I did, resulting in this API.

On top of that API Sean Hammons already implemented a pane for getClicky, and I myself created a Pepper for Mint. It looks like this:

    I’ve been using your twitter counter for about a week and it just wont update. The only way to get it to update and show my correct amount of followers is to go into preferences and re-enter my username.

    Also, the “week” part never works, when I check that it says “Please make sure you’ve entered your Twitter username in the preferences correctly.”

    Would love these bugs fixed, otherwise I’ll just remove it as it is no use to me currently.
