pownce releases public api

pownce, kevin rose’s twitter-clone, just released their public api.

right now you can get lists of public notes, user profiles, and individual notes with replies. we’ll soon be adding the ability to post notes and get friends-only or private notes. check out the api documentation to find out more details.

this is definitely a good step for pownce (towards bringing it in line with other micro-blogging platforms) but i’m still left wondering what to use the service for. twitter (even with all its drawbacks) has a larger user base, is less buggy, more light-weight, and already has a slew of api-based applications that i can use. furthermore, the one reason why i was using pownce (as a digg-messaging service) was made redundant once the digg team added shouts to the latest revision of digg.
