Twitter API: a new standard?

It started with Matt’s announcement of support for posting to and reading of WordPress.com blogs via the Twitter API.

Now Tumblr, inspired by WordPress, has introduced a Twitter compatible API.

Dave Winer says: “If Facebook were to implement the Twitter API that would be it. We’d have another FTP or HTTP or RSS”.

If it was also added to the self hosted WordPress, the case would be even stronger for the Twitter API becoming a new open standard.
