HTC Peep Dead, For Now

Been using HTC Peep to keep up with your Twitter feed? Been having troubles getting logged in to your account? That would be because of the whole Twitter OAuth change that has claimed the lives of other Twitter clients including a WMExperts favorite, Twikini.

The basic gist of the problem is that Twitter changed their authentication protocol to OAuth, which allows users to approve an application without sharing their password. Twitter announced these changes back in December with an original target date of June which was later pushed to August 16.

What Twitter client do you use? Is it still working? Let us know in the comments.

Shameless Plug: If you need some folks to follow on Twitter try @wmexperts, @backlon, @philnickinson, @malatesta77, @coppertop004, @tferrill.

Thanks to everyone that sent this in!

Update: HTC says via Twitter that they know about the issue and they're working it. No indication about when to expect a fix.
