While much could be written about the early days of Twitter and how third-party applications were key to the growth of the service, I get that times change and things evolve.
That said, for those of us who are Twitter power users, third-party applications continue to play an important role in our use of the service for publishing, conversation, and commerce. Twitter has announced that in June, they’ll make changes cutting off third-party applications from the ability to stream tweets. This impact will be breaking my Twitter experience in a big way.
If this change happens, there’s a really good chance that will be the end of my use of Twitter as a service.

Whether you use Tweetbot, Twitteriffic, Talon, or another third-party service to view your Twitter timeline, this will affect you.
