Well, the requirements are geared toward developers like me who are displaying tweets from their company inline on their company's website (imagine a feature on a homepage that displays the most recent tweets).
They want very strict control over exactly what that inline display looks like, and what can be done with it (e.g., you must have a button to allow a user to reply to the tweet, but that button can't also allow the user to post that reply to some other site).
Say you are a member of both Twitter and Facebook, and my company posts an interesting video (say, Mr. Rogers fighting Chuck Norris) in its Twitter feed, and we then display that Twitter feed on the company website (say, NorrisVsRogers.com). Why shouldn't we create a button that will allow you to simultaneously post that video to your account on Twitter and Facebook (maybe when it posts to Facebook it automatically links back to the Twitter post too), if you so choose? And how would that compromise the tweet?
Intel are just about to start the next Ultimate Coder competition (cunningly called Ultimate Coder 2), and I've been chosen as one of the competitors. The contestants were informed last week that we were chosen, but we are now able to tell the world. More details of the challenge can be found here[^].
I was brought up to respect my elders. I don't respect many people nowadays.
