  2. Was Twitpic (or yfrog or lockerz) ever advisable? Garish ad-covered websites hiding your photo amongst junk really doesn't appeal.

  3. @revdancatt @blech if Flickr made that easy, ie access from twitter clients, we would. Twutpic et al wld nvr have existed!

  4. @Bopuc ah, there hangs several tales. Like doing authentication securely then watching FB and Twitter re-establish the password antipattern.

  6. @blech as a user, I couldn't care less about that crap. They did it and satisfied my need. Now I will go to insragram. ;)

  8. @blech if you get Flickr directly built into Twitter's app functionality/preferences, then people won't use twitpic anymore! cc/ @benward

  9. @arielwaldman Yes they would. Twitpic et al implicitly work using your Twitter identity. No set-up or account pairing or sign up. /cc @blech

  10. @benward @blech ok, revision: just get Flickr to do all that stuff, then people won't use ugly ad-saturated crap! then again, Facebook.

  12. @benward that's good for Twitter & TwitPic, but bad for everyone else. We didn't do bad things that were good for Yahoo (or, tried not to).

    @benward and clearly, Flickr isn't going to re-base their user system around Twitter. So something has to give - probably user choice. :-(

  13. @blaine @benward @blech @tomtaylor well, here's a damn good reason for users to not choose TwitPic: is.gd/ETHzM8

  14. @blaine Posterous has a smart implementation. Implied account creation through other services, completed later when you first visit the site

    @blaine Twitpic, Mobypic, yfrog et al designed around piggybacking. It's not about Twitter, but the design to gain users through an API.

    @blaine Which is why those services are well supported by 3rd party clients too. It is genuinely odd to me that no one tried Flickr, though.

  17. @mathys Sorry, that wasn't what I meant to imply. My point was services building APIs with lightweight user accounts spurred growth in apps.

  21. @mattb @arielwaldman SIGH. Flickr folks hate it when people only think of us as 'the place for the good photos.'
