Twitter is the web's most popular short messaging service. It basically enables users to broadcast a short (140 characters or less) message about themselves or what they are doing/thinking at a given point in time. These thoughts, ideas, observations, opinions, hello messages, random updates etc... are presented as a linear set of posts (similar in nature to Facebook's Friend Update feature, which mimics the success of Twitter and similar short messaging "status update" services.


Authentication/Authorization

As of August 31st, 2010 basic authentication is no longer supported in Twitter's API web services for posting tweets and accessing private user timelines.[1]



Twitter Mobile

Twitter Mobile also includes Mobile SMS but is (at least in North America) dwarfed in number of texts sent, by users of the mobile carriers' default, direct SMS text messaging services.

Selling Friends

Professional hustler turned CEO Jason Calacanis spelled it out on Twitter tonight. The new Twitter "suggested friends" feature (first blogged by Pete Cashmore) is a natural place to sell friend connections between users and companies wanting to communicate with them.
