There is a thriving ecosystem of Twitter developers building products and services that address these needs and help businesses grow. To make it easier for businesses to find the right tools, we’re launching the Twitter Certified Products Program.
Faced with an ever-strengthening wall of criticism, Twitter has gathered together all of its finest MBA graduates for a last-ditch effort to regain the hearts and minds of its audience. Leveraging their extensive experiences in building PowerPoint presentations and self-aggrandizing themselves, the team at Twitter have put together a flawless plan for the future: badges and jargon.
Threatened by small-time independent developers building affable front-end utilities for the Twitter experience, but too lazy to build solutions for so-called "extraordinary needs," Twitter has provided resounding evidence of its intentions and trajectory for the future. Betraying its lingering reliance upon third party developers — contrary to much of its current rhetoric — Twitter has demonstrated its willingness to work with some, but not all, developers.
Working toward the sustenance of some inexplicable business jargon? Fortunately for you, Twitter has yet to define a robust plan to subvert your work. So, to alay any budding concerns, you get a plucky blue badge for your product.
Working toward the construction of a novel, compelling, and user-facing enhancement for the average user? Well, sadly, there's no badge for you.
A lovely ecosystem, indeed.
