Just really a matter of generating random rubbish on the net. Let’s see what the fuss/hype is all about :) Twitter is now using the OAuth method for new registration of applications (either desktop client or browser); some good implementations and code examples are over at http://toys.lerdorf.com/archives/50-Using-pecloauth-to-post-to-Twitter.html and http://www.jaisenmathai.com/blog/2009/03/31/how-to-quickly-integrate-with-twitters-oauth-api-using-php/ Still — really…

OK, so there are some benefits to a quick comms tool:¬†http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5izPPeM-vxCZ3iW6Qi0-N7E-0qe-Q (Google’s hosting¬† AFP!? But then again, so is Yahoo with a different take http://tech.yahoo.com/news/afp/iranvotetelecomfacebookyoutube) for example because of restrictive networks (http://blogs.wsj.com/digits/2009/06/15/web-users-in-iran-reach-overseas-for-proxies/)

I guess there’s value in this kind of communications mechanism. But that’s why we made http://smoobi.net / http://smoobi.com is, as well as http://www.mymojo.net, created back in 2003 by http://synch.cc It’s all about identifying the market gap :)

Seems there’s a link between bit.ly and twitter in short URLs… Odd…

Anyways.
