The fact that plugin authors have different approaches or may be
unaware of core features (or possibly just want to support older
versions of WP without those features) says little about core itself.

If you don't like any of the current Twitter plugins, you can make
your own or hire someone else to do so.   So far you haven't mentioned
anything that the core API prevents you from doing with such a plugin,
so there' s no reason to think this is a core issue.
