In an effort to protect its platform from spam and abuse, Twitter today unveiled a number of changes to the way developers will request and obtain access to Twitter's APIs. First, Twitter is requiring that all requests for access to the APIs go through a new developer account application process.
Socialmod is a system to either automate or simplify your site's social content moderation. Its socialmod API allows for direct integration of socialmod into your site, making using their service far easier. Its service has been used for such high-profile sites as the BET.com awards, as described in its blog.
