On this episode the guys talk about how they like to social network. Turns out the guys all truly hate the state of social networking to the point that they sound like the elders on the internet telling ‘them ‘youngins to get off their damn lawns.
Part 1: We talk about Falcon Pro’s Twitter API limiting. We all agree that we care because users bring social interaction to Twitter.
Part 2: Next Chaim details the new Google+ oAuth offering. Spoiler alert: Chaim loves it, Harry says he rather iCloud (whatever that means).
Part 3: We go back into discussing what should be the new social network. We talk about App.net’s freemium model.
[Editor’s note: We should be back to normal in terms of posting. New episodes should be out on Friday].
Changes are afoot and being fretted over 140 characters at a time at Twitter. Episode 55 of inThirty takes you through the changes to Twitter’s API and what they mean for the social network’s bazillion users. Harry is worried he’ll be unable to mute hashtags like #Bieberific and Chaim is concerned that he’ll have to wade through promoted tweets by Costco competitors. Justin, and we’ll blame Google Hangouts for this, ducks out of the conversation for a few, but Mr. Michael Degusta of the theunderstatement.com joins us to lend some much needed metered, sardonic, rationality to the discussion. Mike has also gotten himself on the guest list to the swankiest most VIPiest club on the internet, Twitter competitor App.net and tells us all he can about the service without violating the oath he took to get a spot. Thank you Mike!
