What does Twitter’s new API version mean for developers? Thursday’s news that the company would place new restrictions on its API elicited quite the response on Twitter itself.

Developers have been working since June to figure out what a Twitter API restriction could look like. Now, with clearer guidelines, the floodgates have opened, and with Twitter’s announcement on Thursday afternoon came a deluge of reactions to the news. And of course, developers posted their reactions to Twitter.

Here are a variety of reactions and comments as expressed on Thursday, from many people who seem to think Twitter’s news will dramatically change the web’s landscape:

Instapaper founder Marco Arment:

Daring Fireball‘s John Gruber:

Bottlenose CEO’s Nova Spivack:

YouTube‘s Hunter Walk:

Tweetbot‘s Paul Haddad:

ThinkUp‘s Gina Trapani:

Box.net‘s CEO Aaron Levie:
