This may sound funny but I sit on the fence with this one. I was in on the development of one such twitter app however with changes of the last few years, it is mostly like many others out there, a tad outmoded.
I think the success of the outside apps has moved twitter to do more; better. And at this point, they realize the importance of development more than ever. IF the outside apps have moved twitter to pour more time/money into further development, Yea!
So the outside apps have done that job; twitter is aware that they could do much more for their users. If others have made a load of cash on their barnacle twitter apps then why shouldn’t twitter take note and shoot for those very same dollars? After all, twitter is the Mom of short and sweet and the others have attached themselves to this much bigger fish.
One place to do it all gets my vote however, it did take the push of the barnacles to get twitter against the dyke.
It depends on if twitter is up to the challenge that has been put before them.
