What is this "site" thing you speak of? If I take it to mean every 
target resource under the domain twitter.com, then we both know that's 
wrong, http://twitter.com/ refers to an application who's start state is 
described in HTML and which comprises of several different embedded and 
referenced resources, and the hash-bang-slash-webr3 is independent of 
the URI scheme, they are the primary form of /client-side/ indirect 
referencing.

In reality everything is a different resource? well without getting in 
to the semantics of this, because that statement is provably false, I'll 
take it at face value to mean that everything which the application 
provides a view of (or things which comprise a composite view), in which 
case I think you'll find every "resource" is defined by it's own unique 
URI, unless of course it's only available as part of a collection.

Best,

Nathan
