API Blackout Testing on May 22, 2013

Friday, 17 May 2013

In further preparation for the retirement of API v1 on June 11, 2013, we’ll be conducting another blackout test on May 22nd, 2013 from approximately 20:00 UTC to 21:00 UTC (1pm to 2pm Pacific).

During the blackout test, API v1 will respond to authenticated & unauthenticated requests with “HTTP 410 Gone”. Please read this post for a more complete accounting of what to expect.

As usual, please follow @twitterapi for updates before, during, and after the blackout test.
