Twitter apologizes to, tries to woo back, developers

CEO Jack Dorsey uses Flight conference for his mea culpa.

Twitter talked about updates to the Fabric development platform, easier sharing from apps, and better analytics of Twitter data for information about the people using their apps.

Moorhead said the announcements won't be enough to earn back developers' trust. Blau, however, thought the announcements could start easing tensions.

"Twitter appears to be taking a new approach at the Flight conference," he said. "There's been a continual stream of announcements about improvements to Twitter developer tools, and many of those new technologies and products fill in holes and help developers with more than just tweets. And they are providing app developers with a core suite of tools that will help them on their overall app strategies."

Dorsey also noted during his keynote presentation today that developers can use the hashtag #HelloWorld to send in their feedback.

The company, according to the new CEO, will listen.
