This could be really important or it could be nothing. According to this article, "Google, Twitter, Facebook, and Twitter have partnered and launched Data Transfer Project (DTP). The companies call it an 'open-source, service-to-service data portability platform' that aims to let you move your data from one platform to the other with ease." The most important thing is that "as it’s an open source initiative (here’s the GitHub Code), the tech giants expect other participants to join the platform and enhance data portability." See also "a research paper which describes that DTP will support existing standards like REST and OAuth." Here's the Google blog post about it. Microsoft's blog post.
