Twitter Introduces ‘Fabric’

Standard

After repeatedly angering third-party apps by cutting off access to its API, Twitter will launch a new app development platform called Fabric to bury the hatchet with scorned developers, according to a report.

In my mind, cutting off 3rd party services is where Twitter turned a corner from “upstart startup” to “money-grabbing corporation.”

It sounds like Fabric is a little more of the same, a platform for data collection. I just hope developers take to it, users enjoy it, and Twitter remains about user experience, and not simply about money.
