“I shut down a whole bunch of experimental Twitter apps. I feel a phase ending. I don’t see Twitter as my platform.” – Dave Winer
In my work to bring Cullect back from hiatus, I’ve been doing a full code review and asking myself what should stay, what should be fixed, and what should go.
A number of the services Cullect originally integrated with no longer exist (Ma.gnol.ia for example). Cullect had fairly deep Twitter integration (at the time) but that seems extraordinarily less useful or valuable today.
Importance is difficult to discern with a 5-minute half-life.
Adding to that – I’ve got another project with fairly significant Twitter integration – and I’m just not terribly interested in building it out. Nor am I seeing the demand for it.
