Twitter and Facebook Both Quietly Kill RSS, Completely | Stay N Alive - 2011-05-08 | via oAnth-miscellaneous at

Converging the World of Marketing and Technology


 ... seeing as I'm the only one who noticed, I have a feeling they have little reason to re-add the open protocol back into their interface. Personally, I think it's a shame, as it makes it so only developers like myself can code anything to extract that data - the average user has no way of pulling that data out of Twitter or Facebook.

It seems in 2011 and the era of Facebook and Twitter we've completely lost any care for open standards. Maybe it's not just RSS that is dying - it's the entire premise of open standards that is dying, and I think that's really sad, and really bad for not just developers, but users in general.
