It is error only, and not truth, that shrinks from inquiry. - Thomas Paine
From what I know now, Twitter probably made the right decision. It's not hard to see how Thunderclap could be used as a spamming service, especially by pyramid marketing types. It'd be interesting to hear what, if any, preventative measures Thunderclap has included. What's great about Twitter is how it allows you to manage your signal to noise ratio yourself, something Facebook does not. Sounds like Thunderclap might undermine that. Simply put, I think Twitter wants to remain social, but wants to allow users to determine who comes to their own party.
