Remember Twitter Music? The free app went from rumor to reality to apparent washout within weeks, and now little birds close to the microblogging service claim Twitter may be on the verge of killing it completely.
Twitter is about to spread its wings and fly into a completely different kind of product nest, with a music app that taps into the users you follow to suggest what kind of tunes you might want to listen to.
Although it's not much of a surprise, developers of third-party Twitter apps were put on notice Thursday afternoon with a blog post detailing changes to its API that could eventually limit choices for using the microblogging service.
Like a scene out of Hitchcock’s cinematic classic, the birds at Twitter have swooped in for the kill, this time taking aim at the team at Posterous. While there’s no blood and carnage quite yet, the fate of the popular Posterous Spaces is a question mark.
Twitter made a big announcement this afternoon from its west coast offices. The microblogging service has announced a new Twitter.com. The new site will feature a new user interface with a much bigger sidebar that will take up half of the screen real estate on your monitor (or, if you prefer, your mobile device). The right pane will also have mini profiles of users with their recent tweets. Twitter calls it a, "richer, faster experience"
