Twitter Web Widgets Coming Soon?

Mon, Jan 18, 2010

Casual, Facebook, Social

Plenty of websites allow connections to Twitter in order to pass along their stories, or to use one’s Twitter profile as a commenting account. Frisky Mongoose’s own DISQUS system will allow you to leave us comments (please!) via one’s Twitter ID. None of these web tools, however, can compare to the robust functions offered by Facebook Connect, the all-encompassing suite that the social network released over a year ago. This is about to change, however, according to a report from TechCrunch.

Citing confirmation from “multiple sources,” TechCrunch suggests that a similar all-encompassing Twitter API is en route, which will present a much more complete solution for web and application developers — at least compared to the buttons and smaller widgets currently offered.

In keeping with other Twitter applications such as TwitPic, it is my humble request that these new connectivity packages be called “Twidgets.” It would totally work, people. I’m just saying.

Be Sociable, Share!
