Twitter has evolved past the label of "social network" to "communication platform". It's not about what your page looks like, or how many followers you have; it's about the message, and the ability to spread it across the world in milliseconds.
The Twitter API is one of the easiest to get started programming with if you are a beginner, so it's only fitting that Twitter would throw a developer hoedown to get people building things. Chirp, the Twitter Developer Conference, is scheduled for April 14th.
I will try to get some more details from my friends at Twitter, but this should be a great event.
I think some of the ideas to come out of this event will be beneficial to the Twitter userbase; there hasn't been a true Twitter developer garage yet, but dozens of companies have been started to build products for Twitter. Now, great minds can gather and collaborate on new ideas.
Will you attend the event? With Twitter's worldwide reach, I bet there will be satellite events in sync with the live event.
Check back with The Web Life for more details as they come in.
