just use their API.
Which presumably most people do anyway ... unless you are a programmer.
I assume this is because they don't want people to copy large amounts
of their stuff and process it so to make a twitter2 from it
What "using their API" means is that they don't want you copying and pasting, but they don't mind using a special app to pull it in with. An example of this is that you can use a special app (which uses Twitter's API) to have your twitter posts to automatically go to your blog or your facebook page.
Does that make it clearer?
There's an awful lot of extremists and fundamentalists...that's really what's gone wrong with the planet right now. Whether they're right, left, center or whatever, they're dangerous.
