Hi all,

Today is the last day of my Twitter API Support contract. I will be
stepping down from this role and return to full-time 3rd party Twitter
app development. In other words, I will no longer be under Twitter's
employ. This also means that I will no longer be responding to the
dev-list in any sort of official capacity. I may still chime in
occasionally with questions/comments as a voice from the community,
but that will be as "official" as it gets.

I have enjoyed the opportunity to help so many developers on (and
especially off) the list to help further their apps.

I leave the official dev-list communication in the very capable hands
of the Twitter Platform Team.

By the way, Twitter is still hiring! If you feel that this Support
role is something that you would like, please apply!

There are several other open positions as well:

Cheers!

Sorry to see you go Chad. You helped me and the rest of the community
out a ton in your time at Twitter.

I owe you a beer sometime (maybe have a 3rd party twitter-dev meet up
at 21st Amendment or something sometime if you are in SF?).

Chad has been awesome in supporting the Twitter developer community,
digging into details, and working out thorny issues. He will be
missed!

Chad, thanks for all your help -- it's been great to have a regular contact
at Twitter and I'll be sorry to see you step down.
