Twine and the ephemeral nature of web services

Twine - another web service that I used for a while - has been closed by its purchaser, Evri. Web-services are fine to use, as long as we don't become dependent on them. Meanwhile, Sarah Perez says on Buzz that her husband's gmail account was disabled suddenly without warning. "Wow, had no idea this could even happen. Google just disabled my husband's Gmail account. No idea why. Maybe it was hacked? Used to send spam? Too bad he just put it on all his business cards. I guess this is what you get for using a free service."
