Last week at Le Web, Twitter's Platform Director, Ryan Sarver, announced that Twitter will be "opening the firehose to all developers." As I recall, there were a number of reasons why Twitter kept the firehose restricted. Some of these were "legal reasons".
I'm starting to put together an action plan for 2010, and I'm really curious - what has changed legally since then that would allow Twitter to open the firehose to "all developers?" What legal agreements / licenses / contracts must a developer commit to in order to gain access to the firehose? -- M.
