“@russellholly : Oh hey, Slices for Twitter is amazing on the Nexus 7. Might be the new app for me.”
With Twitter narrowing their love for sharing data, how are new twitter apps suppose to survive post web 2.0? Previously every major social network freely opened up their waterhose of date via their api. Lately that is starting to change and developers are complaining and contemplating other ways of microblogging.
What about newly launched apps like “Slices”? Thankfully their name is different so they can’t get in trouble for that, although it looks like they formerly called it “Tweetvision”. They also add what made The yahoo owned bookmarking site “Delicious ” famous…. bookmarking. No its not new but it is needed for the mobile space. Slices also adds an easier way to parse/digest tweets.
In the end it’s up to the users and the companies that are being piggybacked. 5 years ago it was a compliment having others use your data for their programs. Now it is a liability since parent companies want to use this data for monetary purposes.
