TWITTER wants the cake and also wishes to eat it...

Twitter has announced that it wants other Twitter clients to stop writing or updating tweets through its API.

Why? SIMPLE, they loose out on Ad revenue from Ads being displayed within their own Twitter App.

There is commercialization and then there is greed.

They already get Ad revenue from their website but now they want the App Ad share too.

I can't help but think people who don't like the official Twitter App just going away from Twitter.

A lot of Enterprises have large systems using the API to pump out tweets which would stop... they may not choose to use Twitter's own Fat client.

Watch this space.
