Twitter 3rd Party Apps Will Live On

If you thought that the #NewTwitter would be the death of 3rd party apps then today is a great example of why they will live on. Even though the #NewTwitter (which I still don’t have by the way) is feature rich, the rest of us who have not received the #NewTwitter were subject to a cross site scripting attack. This effected all of Twitter that had not been migrated to the new UI but not most of the popular 3rd party clients.  Yet again Twitters failure to scale has left us in a lurch.  Thank god for TweetDeck and all those other clients that are bringing us functionality and security that Twitter isn’t capable of providing.
