Submission + - TweetMeme Shuts Down (i-programmer.info)

mikejuk writes: With less than a week's notice TweetMeme is to shut completely on October 1st and the green Retweet button which was used by half a million websites has already disappeared. Although existing buttons have been replaced on users' websites by Twitter's own button which has similar functionality, the counts have been reset to zero, wiping out any trace of their popularity. Twitter is imposing conditions to deter third-party developers from building or maintaining consumer-facing products and while TweetMeme could have continued for a while, why bother once you know your days are numbered? This is presumably the first of many shutdowns.
