Has anyone been watching the Twitter Chirp Developer Conference?

They are releasing a JavaScript-based feature called @anywhere which enables you to add Twitter functionality directly into your web sites. At the minute this includes basic functionality such as sign-in, following and tweeting but will be added to in the future.

What are people's thoughts on this advancement?

It's interesting. My biggest concern with integrating with Twitter right now is how they are treating 3rd party developers as of late. I'm just not inclined to include Twitter unless absolutely necessary, until things get sorted out.

I think you're right there, Gregg. A lot has been discussed in the Twitter's developer forums since the acquisition of Tweetie. Each of the platforms does have the potential to pull the rugs from the feet of developers at any time. Facebook has continually been retracting its functionalities for some time to streamline its services to its users. What you do get with Twitter is a popular (at the moment) service which is looking to expand but to what expense to its developers?
