They must in order for any app of significant size to exist. To reiterate others in this thread, Twitter does a great job. I think the alliance is a bit unrealistic (though interesting). I would like to see a developer bill of rights which is officially backed by Twitter and made public. They could of course change this as they feel necessary but once it's publicly disclosed then everyone is on the same page as to what they can and should expect. As a developer one of my primary concerns if that Twitter creates or modifies a policy which only has an implicit guideline. That's easy to do and could cause harm to developers that have invested a lot of time. This would, in the long run, wind up resulting in a crappy developer community (ala Facebook). I would also like to see on the bill of rights a list of rights reserved for Twitter. They're ultimately in control and have the most at stake. I trust the Twitter team as much as the rest of us on this list but I would like to see some sort of commitment for long term behavior if possible. Thanks for starting the thread Peter.
