How about an open standard for publishing social media posts - that way you could host your social media account on whatever server you choose, facebook, twitter or rent some shared server space - just like we do with http content. Could that work? You could keep ownership of your own data, instead of being tied in to proprietary services - and open up the market for more competition to come in.
