So what is with the cooperation between Twitter and LinkedIn. At its core, it does make sense. After all, both are used for networking and can be used effectively by professionals across the globe. What remains unclear, is just how effective this marriage of the two services can actually be?
Then there is the matter of once again, over-taxing an already double-booked Twitter. As it is today, the service still fails far too often for my taste. Even with recent performance improvements, I think Twitter is still too vunerable to problems for it to be tied into something such as LinkedIn.
At the end of the day, I think that they need to get a handle on their outages, give more resources to the API then let’s talk about a tie in with services such as LinkedIn. But this is just my perspective, your opinions will likely vary.
