Hey developers looking to build the next great Twitter supported service, did you hear that KABOOM in the distance?
We’re not talking any small bomb going off either, but rather an atom bomb size explosion – if the rumor being floated by Alexia Tsotsis at TechCrunch has any validity.
It seems, according to the post, that Twitter will be announcing, as soon as tomorrow, that they are going to be launching their own photosharing service effectively smacking other services like Twitpic and yFrog with what amounts to a body blow.
According to multiple sources, Twitter is on the verge on announcing its own built in Twitpic competitor. Like tomorrow, if things go according to plan (naturally this post might change that).
This shouldn’t really come as a surprise to anyone, as photosharing is the next logical step of Twitter expanding its in app experience. It’s basically grabbing at low hanging fruit.
Personally I am not the least surprised if this is indeed the case. For some time now I have been saying that anyone thinking of building a company on top of Twitter had better be developing something really niche because doing otherwise will be nothing more than an exercise in self-abuse.
It makes one wonder if developers are beginning to feel like idea machine for Twitter?
