(April 17, 2009) Alex Payne explores the interaction design of APIs, particularly through the lens of the speaker's experience evolving the popular Twitter API. The speaker argues for the notion of a "humane" API", one derived from simplicity, "explorability" and consistency.

Alex Payne is API Lead at Twitter, Inc., a communications service used by millions to share short messages.
