Bounce or Not, Twitter Still Only Crawls

Twitter gets its sexy back – reports VentureBeat.  Twitter Bounced Back! [I Toldja So] – says Mashable.

Yes, we stick around, waiting for Twitter to get up from its deathbed. And for I while it looked like it’s pulse was coming back. But today it’s down to 20 API requests again.  This means Twhirl and other clients can check it once every 8-10 minutes.  That’s so slow, you just completely lose the rhythm.  The occasional batch updates bring in way too many messages that immediately scroll down, and you don’t feel like responding: in twitter-time 20 minutes are too long.  So client use is out of question, and who wants to keep refreshing the web-page?

For now, Twitter is still dead.
