Hey Matt, I know the tweet button very well, and I agree that it's better for most use-cases (we're actually driving our customers towards using / share instead of /home?status= for their custom share to Twitter interfaces). However, all legacy 'Share on Twitter' or 'Tweet This' implementations (that don't go through OAuth) use /home?status= and if the things that worked before stop working as #newtwitter rolls out to the full userbase, it's going to break a lot of stuff for people who haven't yet had a chance to switch to the tweet button or a custom integration with /share.
