Twitter Really, Really Hates 3rd Party Developers

More awesomeness from Twitter today directed at 3rd party app developers including API rate limiting and a limit to the amount of users you can have. They even include a graph called “quadrants of ecosystem development” to break it all down.

I only use Twitter with third party apps but I am a nerd who only occasionally tweets. I wonder what the reaction will be of normal users when something like Tweetbot stops working. Will they angrily leave Twitter? Or will they just download the official app and move on?

Update: Changed my initial title as it was way to close to the title of Mr. Gruber’s article on the same subject.
