Twitter suspends UberTwitter and twidroyd
What are the Twitter addicts going to use now?
Twitter clients, UberTwitter, UberCurrent and twidroyd, have been suspended by Twitter for policy violations.
In an official blog post, Twitter says they are announcing their move as, in this case, the suspension may affect a large number of users. It said, "We have suspended UberTwitter and twidroyd for violating our policies."
It also adds that users can consider downloading the official Twitter for BlackBerry, Twitter for Android and other official apps, as well as using their mobile website, apart from other third-party developers that are considered in line with Twitter's policies.
UberMedia is the owner of UberTwitter, UberCurrent and twidroyd. Techies will remember UberMedia recently acquired UK-based Tweetdeck into its portfolio.
Twidroyd's official Twitter account has said that a new version of the client which will resolve the issues of the ban will soon be released (that tweet was made on the web client incidentally).
Bill Gross, founder and CEO of UberMedia has said (on Quora) that they have removed the tweet-elongation service named tmi.me (which allows users to write more than Twitter's 140-character limit) at Twitter's request, and have officially changed their name to UberSocial. With regard to UberCurrent (a Twitter app for iPhones), Gross said, "Twitter said that in UberCurrent we change links that are part of an affiliate program to be our own links. We don’t currently do this, but we removed all changing of links to eliminate any possibility of this."
According to him, they are now waiting for the apps to be restored.
