With over 800 social APIs, there are more options than ever to integrate services into our lives. As developers, we see the best--and often the worst--of this social data crunching.

In the above video from ProgrammableWeb's track on social APIs at DataWeek in September, you can see three talented developers discuss the pains and joys, including "what's up with Twitter?"

The panel includes Kavika Vollmar of Gnip, Nick Vlku of YourTrove and Abraham Williams of Addvocate (and PHP Twitter OAuth library).
