The post summarises the reasons a number of startups are no longer around. I never really considered TwitApps to be a startup, but I was honoured that Matt wanted to include it in the post.
Matt didn’t use all of my answers to his questions, so in case anyone’s interested I thought I’d post them here.
I’ve had the same thought running around my head since putting the TwitApps domain names up for sale yesterday… would people pay for it?
I’ve been holding on to a bunch of domain names with plans for all of them, but I’ve decided that I’m unlikely to ever get around to using them, so I’ve decided to put them up for sale.
Rather than use an auction site I’ll be accepting offers by email on stuart at 3ft9 dot com until the end of July. The highest offer at midnight for each of the domains on August 1st, 2010 will win. Anyone making a bid will receive an email notifying them if they’re outbid. If people end up fighting for any of the domains I’ll continue to take bids into August until there’s only one bidder left.
I finally got around to releasing the code for TwitApps on my github account. There is no license attached to this code so it’s in the public domain and anyone is free to do whatever they want with it. I don’t guarantee it will be easy to get working, or that it will work at all on your server, but if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me and I’ll do my best to help.
I’ve not provided much in the way of instructions at this point but I may add some next time I have a spare five minutes.
If you find a use for this code I’d love to hear about it so please let me know.
Please retweet this so everyone who uses TwitApps finds out this is happening. Thanks.
It is with some regret that I am announcing that I will be shutting TwitApps down at the end of this month. I would like to say this has been a difficult decision but that’s not accurate.
