Twitter is the Benjamin Button of apps

Twitter to Dump Third-Party Image Hosts From Apps

Twitter will reportedly stop supporting third-party image hosts on its official apps. The changes will likely roll out in the next round of updates, according to a Buzzfeed source. Currently, users are able include photos in their tweets that are hosted by Twitter’s own official photo service, as well as third-party websites such as Twitpic and yfrog.

i hope developers not only consider their future involvement with Twitter but with any of the other new companies the founders develop.......(square etc)

You know I saw a comment the other day that sums it up

Twitter is the Benjamin Button of startups.

Born out of wisdom and insight in our daily social behaviour, completely changing the way we communicate. Soon grown into a heroic Atlas, holding up the world of third-party developers on its shoulders, thriving as the platform rises along with thousands of apps and services transforming the experience. Dusk approaches when Twitter sheds its desire to leave a mark on humanity and finds itself destined to die as a single-feature web-based MVP. A sparkle in a developer's eye.
