So how about that iOS 5? Pretty nifty [REDACTED] huh? And have you checked out [REDACTED] yet? And woah, man look at [REDACTED] will you?

But you can find links to all that good stuff plenty of places no doubt; here’s a non-redacted, why non-WWDC even, one you might have missed and if you’re around San Francisco on Wednesday you probably want to check out:

Twitter and iOS – an Integration Workshop

Hi everyone,

We’re incredibly excited about the announcement that Apple made at WWDC today. We believe that Twitter’s deep integration with iOS is going to open up a lot of exciting opportunities for developers. For your apps, this includes:

  • single sign-on and lightweight identity
  • taking advantage of the tweet sheet feature
  • the ability to tweet a photo from your app
  • pulling down a user’s following graph

and a whole lot more. As part of the announcement, we’re looking to host a workshop at Twitter’s headquarters this Wednesday (6/8) from 6:30pm to 8:30pm at 795 Folsom Street. At this event, we’ll cover what the integration hooks mean for developers. Loren Brichter will also be talking about ABUIKit, a UI framework specifically for Mac, which we’ll be open-sourcing.

… RSVP at [this] link

We hope you’ll be able to join us for the evening.

Good stuff, good stuff. As apparently the last person on the planet with a computer that has managed to avoid getting a Facebook account so far, we’re certainly quite pleased indeed that Apple chose the correct social platform to integrate with!
