    Personally – I think it’s because too many people have miss-used the third party apps and programs. A lot of people tend to use these spammy methods for self-growth and not really contributing value to their users. Would you accept an invite from someone who posts every hour for 24hours a day – To me it’s just means low quality content and a spammer.

  • Although these are only speculations, these reasons are most likely why Twitter had to part ways with Linkedin and Tumblr. I personally think that this may also be due to the increasing level of irrelevant noise evident in most of the updates of individuals who intend to spam the platform. Thanks for sharing your thoughts :)

      Good point, Joy, with the reference to “irrelevant noise.” While some may be aware and trying not to contribute to that irrelevant noise, many use apps and so forth, not realizing that they may be contributing. It would be easiest for Twitter to disconnect the apps rather than educate every last Twitter user. Interesting perspective. Thanks!

  • The success of Twitter as one of the leading platforms for social networking may be attributed to their open nature as evidenced by numerous tie-ups they made so this came as a surprise to me. This decision to stop playing nice may be detrimental to their reputation but we cannot blame them for trying to protect their company from third-parties who may not be able to convey their features the same way. Thanks!

      Good point, Kristine. Yes, it surprised me, too and I wonder what ramifications these actions will have, good or bad, or possibly a combination of both.
