Twitter Starts To Open Its Firehose To Drive Innovation [blog.twitter.com]
Today, we’re happily turning the Firehose on for some new partners focused mainly on exploring the incredibly rich field of real-time search and discovery. We are thrilled to announce that Ellerdale, Collecta, Kosmix, Scoopler, twazzup, CrowdEye, and Chainn Search join us as partners. These companies range from funded startups to part-time, one-person operations so we came up with a fair way to license access that scales with their business.

SMRT. I like the idea of the scale ups. that opens all the door to the one person shops. Probably like twitter was way back when.

I don't know about this hosing partners business. I do agree however that many tweets I've read are incredibly rich, or something.

Seriously, the immediacy is the message, sorry Marshall McLuhan.

In fairness to Marshall he did also once say "When a thing is current, it creates currency". twitter is putting that to the test.
