Thread: Twitter is a tragic tale.

I’ve known Chuck Shotton since 1995, early days of the Mac web community. I was doing Frontier, an editing and database environment that turned out to be an almost perfect match for web programming. Chuck was doing WebStar, the leading HTTP server for the Mac. Our products complemented each other well, and we’ve been friends ever since.

I wrote a piece yesterday about Twitter needing a plan B for developers, and Chuck left a comment which I think is worth quoting in full:

What Chuck says is true.

And we still need to create the layer that Twitter could have created.
