Single purpose API
Sorry, No followers
As more and more people are using Twitter as a means of sharing and communicating, it seems that almost every web and mobile application on the planet as a "Share this on Twitter" feature. Most of the time, this feature is welcome. Posting Foursquare mayorships, new blog posts, entertaining YouTube video, etc. But sometimes, it's a problem. Namely, when a web application doesn't include the option to not post to Twitter or makes the button hard to find or easy to miss.
Microsoft has announced its new Facebook SDK, which allows developers using Microsoft technologies to quickly create web client (via Silverlight), web server (via ASP.NET) and desktop (via WinForms and WPF) applications that harness the power of the Facebook API.
