On Monday, it was Facebook’s turn to make a move in its evolving chess match with Twitter, the rapidly growing micro-blogging service.

The company announced the Facebook Open Stream API, a program that will allow third-party developers to create applications that pull in Facebook “streams” -– the current of status updates, photos and links that members see when they visit the service.
