    Just got the update from Twitter re: OAuth and

    Ever since registering some .eu's and letting them drop I've never been a fan of any of the new tlds (although I have a couple of's) and wasn't tempted in the slightest with the .co's

    But here's part of the Twitter email that's interesting:
    So there's a lot of fluff in the quote and I'm still not really sold on .co's but this must give the TLD a big push, maybe leading to more registrations? What do you think?

    I don't think the .co extension needs much of a push!
    I've been tracking available LLL/product .co's for a while now
    and almost every one has been regged. They are flying off the shelf!
    I know a lot of the experienced guys are saying that it is a waste of time,
    comparing them to .biz .me .cm etc but i think .co is very different to those extensions. .co is a shorter version of .com and
    As more of the world gets connected to the internet they are seeing a
    total lack of liquidity/availability in .com's and are scrambling for an alternative.
    I think .co has a long way to run yet. It might be like Blackpool trying to catch Chelsea but it has the best chance so far. recently sold for $53k (probably not knowing that it is a UK TM)
    I bet there are a few guys on this forum quietly licking their lips.
