Twitter tells third-party devs to stop making Twitter client apps

Twitter tells third-party devs to stop making Twitter client apps:
"In a statement issued today by Twitter on its official developer mailing list, the company informed third-party developers that they should no longer attempt to build conventional Twitter client applications. In a move to increase the 'consistency' of the user experience, Twitter wants more control over how its service is presented to users in all contexts."

I don't think I'd bother with Twitter if TweetDeck didn't make it palatable.
