Twitter and Time

10x and Real Time

Biz Stone in a video podcast with Robert Scoble, "Yeah, our API was really important. We released it early on and as a result we like see ten times more traffic through our API than through our website."

Ten times. The future lies with API development.

Other quote of note: "not like the standard RSS thing, which is just awful, because it sucks for them -because they have to wait and only check every once in a while- and it's bad for us because we're constantly getting hit by these guys: 'what're you doing, what're you doing, what are you doing?' So we'll have this real time thing..."

Real Time. What's coming next. Move over RSS. We will hardly have known ye when the next wave of tech comes out of TwitterHQ.
