There is a lot of ambiguity up in the air, about api devs (third party) and the future of the api and twitter. Apps are a huge growth vehicle and a very significant piece of the future, getting the Twitter medium a global behavior.
I believe there should be a formal alliance of third party developers to ensure that Apps have rights. The ambiguity around "down the road, if and when" scenarios, leave many investors weary, teams unformed, and products unbuilt because at the end of the day, people have to consider a massive acquisition or change where suddenly apps are crushed by the parent. Twitter is not facebook and potential for sustainable/profitable products and services around this medium are real. If you don't agree, that's fine. I am seeking those who believe this and want to address this. This is not meant to be a big, serious thing. This is meant to be an action item to those who want a developer bill of rights to happen, with input/voice from an organized approach, and want to create some level of insurance, to go out to investors/partners with an approach. If anyone would like to discuss this, please let me know off the list. I am not trying to irritate people, just gauge people's interest. Regards Peter
