I watched most of yesterday's press announcements about Twitter's new toolkits for developers. I know they can't do everything, but I was surprised that they're more or less leaving the Twitter API as-is, at least based on what I heard yesterday. There are so many people I'd like to gossip with this about, and I know I won't get the chance, so here's a blog post instead.
I really want a service that does what all three of them do. Every app needs identity and storage. Not necessarily a lot of storage. A megabyte is a lot of space for an outline, which is basically an XML document. With the amount of space used by a few pictures, something Twitter and Facebook already do for users, without limits, a huge range of interesting apps could be written. Today we have to do that for ourselves. It would be easier for everyone if the platforms did it too.
There's a big void out there, someone should fill it. If Twitter had it would have made 2015 a more interesting year, imho.
