Twitter's Biz Stone Tries To Clarify The Issue of Third Party Apps [bbc.co.uk]
Twitter founder Biz Stone has rejected suggestions that the site is shunning developers in order to make money. He told BBC News that attempts to dissuade companies from writing Twitter client applications were about improving the user experience.

Twitter has come under fire for suggesting that it did not want developers creating software which replicates its own interface. Critics claimed the dispute was about ensuring users view adverts its site.

Since Twitter's creation, scores of third-party applications have appeared that allow users to write, read and respond to tweets. However, in a recent blog posting, Twitter's coding chief Ryan Sarver suggested that companies should consider stopping making such software.

The move was condemned by developers who feel they are partly responsible for Twitter's success and are concerned about how they will make money in the future.
