My big ask (yeah, I put it on the form) is a formal release of the rather excellent JSAPI behind @anywhere… this was sort of shown as development pre-release and now seems to have been pulled even from that state, which seems a damn shame for those us doing twitter in AJAX.
@anywhere is still supported, but not the goodies underneath it (and they ARE still underneath it).
Between that and the widgets (which I also consider could be a key asset for developers if opened up slightly) it seems that there’s some great work gone in standardising and wrapping up details. For example, I use the widget code to assemble the presentation of tweets, as that way I’m pretty sure I’m going to comply with the “Tweet Presentation Rules” (avatars, images, screen names, intents, corporate logo etc etc) whereas with “other APIs” I have to reverse engineer and recreate the presentation logic for the data that they’re happy for me to use, but want to say HOW I should present it.
For the avoidance of doubt: “Pretty please… oh go on… I’ll be your best friend…”
