Twitter goes @anywhere, sharing made easier

Twitter has announced it will soon be introducing @anywhere, a new tool for website developers.  Instead of pesky API’s, this new @anywhere will be a few small lines of JavaScript, allowing users to tweet from their account, without ever leaving the website.

Twitter announced partnerships with online companies including: Amazon, AdAge, Bing, Citysearch, Digg, eBay, The Huffington Post, Meebo, MSNBC.com, The New York Times, Salesforce.com, Yahoo!, and YouTube.  These initial partnerships will all include the new @anywhere feature, when it launches.

If you are watching a YouTube video, Twitter users will be able to tweet about the video they are watching, all without ever leaving YouTube.  Users will also be able to follow a New York Times journalist right from their byline, and will even be able to share information about a product from eBay.

Twitter is even asking JavaScript experts to help participating in building this new @anywhere, by joining @jointheflock.

I don't see why not, they are making deals with these large corporations.. I hope, for Twitters sake, not for free.

still waiting to see how twitter will make money and survive as a company

I think they are making money via datamining, and selling the data they mine to marketing companies. The amount of data to be had on twitter for marketing is amazing. Just do a search for any product and you can get hundreds of opinions streamed to you. I don' think they are selling peoples personal data just what the information they put out freely anyway.

The value of real-time microblogging data and even the data that's derived from "trending topics" is no doubt valuable to someone out there.
