New Math

MG Siegler is right to call bullshit, but his math is wrong. If Twitter shuts IFTTT off entirely, Twitter loses the content additions from IFTTT and IFTTT loses the ability to syndicate Twitter content.

By allowing IFTTT to post to, but not read from, the timeline, Twitter is getting its benefit while denying the benefit to IFTTT. That’s not “half” – that’s “double”.
