 According to the Twitter support page linked above, this is a fait accompli, it's just a matter of one of Jack Dorsey's minions flipping a switch.  They even list steps for iOS devices they claim will disable the feature (opt out, naturally).  Assuming you trust them at their word.  I guess we know now why Twitter is working so hard to kill off 3rd party Twitter apps... Regardless, my original premise stands:  If a high profile app development team was able to sneak...
