attempting to speak neutrally without any partisanship: IMO its a bad idea to create a business where you would have to bend at the whims of another organisation. the "higher bar" that we've been talking about is that scrutiny. > Is Twitter saying "We believe that a Twitter client will not make a lot of > money. Go ahead and try but don't say we didn't tell you so if you make no > money."? Or are you saying "Don't go into the Twitter client business > because we may shut you down at will for any reason"? > > The other statement I keep seeing is that we'll be held to a "higher bar". > What does that mean? Does it mean new Twitter clients might be rejected the > way Apple rejects new apps? Could existing apps be shut down because they > fall beneath this "bar"?
