Twitter, which in the past has been accused to treating third-party developers as second-class citizens by basically borrowing their functionality before telling them they're not longer needed, has just announced that there are more than 1 million registered Twitter applications from 750,000 developers.

Also Monday, Twitter, which reportedly is under investigation by the Federal Trade Commission for the way it treats third-party developers, announced a new version of the Twitter Developer Site, which includes discussions, a developer blog, better documentation, improved apps management and an enhanced search engine.

Surely these things are unrelated.

Twitter seems to extend olive branch to its 750,000 devs amid reports of FTC probe


Twitter is so fucking lame. Such a complete waste of time. I tried to jump on board but I felt like such a douchebag that I bailed never to return. I can't wait til it is gone forever. I am confident that the day will come though it will be a while.
