Yahoo Status API

Note: The Yahoo Status API is no longer available.
This profile is retained for historical purposes only.

The Yahoo! Status API allows for users to set and share their status on Yahoo! and on applications. The user's status is a string with a maximum length of 140 characters; anything longer will be silently truncated. The Status API filters unsafe user input to avoid security issues such as invalid characters in a URL, SQL injections, or cross-site scripting. The API uses RESTful calls and responses are formatted in XML and JSON.
