Back in May, I wrote some thoughts about what looked like the beginning of Twitter pushing third-party clients like Twitterrific and Tweetbot out of the service.

Recently, Business Insider interviewed Paul Haddad, the coding-half of Tweetbot maker Tapbots. I thought the following was worth mentioning:

BI: How has dealing with Twitter been, by the way? They still being awkward to developers about making clients, etc?

PH: It’s been much better over the last few months. I’m not sure they were ever harassing folks, I think it was just really bad communication. But regardless they’ve been really helpful over the last few months. The dev relations group in particular is great, I’m always pestering them with questions and bug reports.

There’s still a view out there that they are actively against third parties and I just don’t think that’s the case.

I find that to be incredibly reassuring that Twitter won’t pigeon-hole us into their single (crappy) experience.
