Being compatible with Twitter is the developer-friendly thing to do, it means we will only have one code base to maintain. It’s good for users, because they have choice, they can use either Twitter or, and not have to make a choice on tools. It’s good for because they instantly get a base of apps that work with their service.

I’ve done a scan for apps and I can’t find any yet, but if you are aware of any, leave a comment. Expect new apps, ranging from web tools through to desktop clients, in the coming days, as development moves nearly at the speed of light.
