Twitter Suspends UberTwitter, Twidroyd For Violations

Twitter Blocks UberTwitter; Use Official Twitter App Instead

Twitter has its own official apps for your iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry devices, but there are also a lot of third-party apps that bring their own flavor to your feed. Twitter recently made it harder for those, and popular desktop apps, to access your information, and now it's put the kibosh on UberTwitter and twidroyd completely.

According to a Twitter blog post, the company has suspended both apps for violating its policies but doesn't offer up which policy they have violated. Twitter did mention that its rules put users and the Twitter platform first, so it's possible that UberTwitter and twidroyd's suspension could have something to do with privacy or trademark infringements.

If you're using one of these apps, I recommend using the official Twitter app until further notice, which is exactly what Twitter wants you to do as well.

I think Twitter users should have the freedom to decide which app they want to use, at their own risk.

I absolutely love Twidroyd and can't wait for it to come back. I can't stand the official Twitter app for Android. The way you have to refresh the tweets is annoying and it's lacking a lot of features Twidroid has. Let's just say I'm tweeting a lot less because of this bs.
