It's not news, and certainly not surprising. And it's not surprising either that Twitter is upset, but what is surprising is the sheer chutzpah of Twitter complaining about Google shutting them out after Twitter unilaterally reversed course and put most of their developer community out of business when they announced they wanted to completely own the Twitter client business. #

You gotta wonder if they ever talk amongst themselves down there at Twitter, and if someone said "You know we'd look a lot better if we hadn't totally fucked our own developers." #

I've been watching a lot of Simpsons lately, so I tend to think of everything in terms of Simpsons characters. It's at this point that I invoke Nelson Muntz and have him utter, on my behalf, his famous tagline. :-) #
