Now, with that kind of clause in a Developer TOS, would it mean applications will need to actively prevent users from violating Twitter TOS?
For example, would Tweetie and TweetDeck then be in violation if they did not prevent users from: a) Publishing the same tweet text more than once in short succession, b) Publishing tweets that all contain links, c) Publishing the same tweet text on more than one account, etc. In the final analysis, and not to alienate the developer community, the onus should rest on the Twitter account holder to understand and comply with Twitter TOS, regardless of what tool is put at his disposal. This does not mean Twitter cannot and should not put certain clear definitions of what an application can and cannot do in a Developer TOS. The aforementioned "enabling others to violate Twitter TOS" is probably just not one of them, now that I have thought about it a bit more. That's just my 2 cents.
