Twitter as a Utility Service

Twitter as a Utility Service: Evan, focus on reliability, at least until jokes dry up. Twitter has implementation flaws you need to flush out. Don’t just leave it to someone to handle it somehow while you enjoy the creamy part of engineering. Did you know that Twitter client developers are abandoning condition GET because Twitter servers frequently lies? Fixing just that problem (and letting developers know so they can return to using conditional GET) will reduce server load significantly. [Interesting.]
