What bothers me is that Twitter's move here has totally deflated the motivation of other Twitter client developers, meaning those of us who never did get what they want from Tweetie will now probably never get what we want as Twitter change the API more and our favourite client doesn't move with it. I can't see why Twitter have done this other than to get seriously 'My bat, My ball' with it and kill a lot of other apps. This is happening on the Mac desktop now, not just the iPhone (which I don't have).
Not in the least impressed here.
