Trouble in Twitterville

News popped on CNN today that Facebook has been awarded a patent on streaming news feeds on social media.  Since that's all Twitter is, look for lawsuits to pop up.

Within Twitter itself, there are rumors of an updated interface that will kill off third-party tweet feeds,  that might be good for them, but Twitter claims the reason their traffic has fallen off is because of those apps.  If they are wrong and the fall off continues, they have no one to blame,
