NewsHow (And Why) I'm Circumventing Twitter's API Instead of Using It [strong language] PinstaffTerrence Dorsey8-Oct-12 11:54 
I believe that the API contributed hugely to Twitter's growth, which was really kind of miraculous since nothing about it was particularly well-designed. For one thing it has always been pretty fail-y, even for OAuth. And rather than scaling the service and improving availability, Twitter has consistently fallen back on trying to limit API usage by enacting restrictive policies and rate limits. It's also pretty clear that Twitter never invested much time or thought into refining the API to be a good general resource for developers building arbitrary apps. Rather, the API was built more or less directly out from the same backend infrastructure of the website itself. You have to do significant post-processing of data to get it out of a form that's useful for anything other than replicating the core Twitter experience (which they famously don't want you to do).
