SpiritDo you ever wish you could Tweet something and it eventually just leaves Twitter? We’ll, I personally don’t have a use for this but what if you’re running a campaign or contest…

Turns out an ex-engineer from Twitter decided to make Spirit, an App to drop your Tweet with just a Hashtag. Yes, just add #1m to Kaboom or #10m to even #30d. I am just
wondering how many new concepts are going to come around these new possible hashtags, I just gave you #1m to Kaboom, so please don’t forget to send BitCoin payments my way.

The only issue I see, is Twitter themselves. They’re VERY strict on who gets to use the Twitter API if they become “popular” and Twitter does NOT like people using Twitter unless
they control it. Which has everyone forgot, Twitter is where it is today because of Developers but of course they DUMPED us by restricting the API and putting crappy Ads (I get,
you need to pay the bills) but to revoke such access and force GUI Guidelines? That’s exactly why the failed App.net didn’t succeed but created to compete against Twitter.

So, will Pierre Legrain (@pierrelegrain) feel the wrath from his ex-coworkers at Twitter OR is he working with Twitter to create new features in which will eventually be taken
over by Twitter? Twitter has a good track record at buying companies who compete with them and/or use their API but don’t do what they want (aka most of the good Twitter
Apps). All I know, is Twitter is a giant powerhouse and still in control of the micro-blog world.
