Postings about Twitter <http://twitter.com/>
Twitter's biggest problem is that it's free to use, free to abuse. Twitter can either continue to try to slog through their problems and rearchitect on the fly, or declare victory and create a new API and impose some sort of cost to using twitter's APIs.
Twitter has added Google Adsense ads to individual status messages, only visible if you're not logged into twitter.
