Twitter goes @anywhere, sharing made easier...

Twitter has announced it will soon be introducing @anywhere, a new tool for website developers. Instead of pesky API’s, this new @anywhere will be a few small lines of JavaScript, allowing users to tweet from their account, without ever leaving the website. Twitter announced partnerships with online companies including: Amazon, AdAge, Bing, Citysearch, Digg, eBay, The Huffington Post, Meebo, MSNBC.com, The New York Times, Salesforce.com, Yahoo!, and YouTube. These initial partnerships will all include the new @anywhere feature, when it launches. If you are watching a YouTube video, Twitter users will be able to tweet about the video they are watching, all without ever leaving YouTube. Users will also be able to follow a New York Times journalist right from their byline, and will even be able to share information about a product from eBay. Twitter is even asking JavaScript experts to help participating in building this new @anywhere, by joining @jointheflock.
