Re: Stay N Alive: Twitter and Facebook Both Quietly Kill RSS, Completely -
"I think this really comes down to different usage patterns. RSS is great for things like blogs. Typically, blogs do not have a full featured API to pull from, or at least not an easy way to pull the newest entries. Twitter and Facebook have fairly complete APIs that allow you to do various things, and the RSS feature is covered by the API. You could consider this just some code simplification because RSS feeds for users may not be heavily used. I am not saying I like it, but it does make sense." - Rob Diana
