No more Twitter apps
By Dave Winer on Wednesday, September 15, 2010 at 8:55 AM.

A picture named fatLady.jpgEvery so often I get asked to look at a Twitter app. I usually look, and usually am depressed by what I see. permalink

They're all scams. If they're any good they'd be better without the connection to Twitter. At least they'd be more honest. permalink

I don't like calling software or platforms dead, but if I did, I'd say that about the Twitter API.  permalink

In any case, I don't expect to see any compelling Twitter apps from here-out.  permalink

PS: One area I'd like to see more development in is alternatives to Disqus. It's an excellent product that I use here on But there are lots of ways to do discussions, lots of social organizations that are not reflected in the open-to-all approach. This is an area where some serious innovation is possible. permalink
