Twitter Lets UberMedia Clients like UberTwitter and Twidroyd Back Online

first_imgOn Friday, Twitter revoked API access for UberMedia applications, like UberTwitter and Twidroyd due to policy violations that varied from changing users’ tweets into advertisements and a privacy issue with direct messages longer than 140 characters. Twitter noted that the decision was the result of prolonged content and negotiations with UberMedia, but a step they had to take. UberMedia apparently got the picture, because their developers spent the weekend retooling their apps and making adjustments to respond to Twitter’s requests. One of those requests was to change the name of the “UberTwitter” app, which Twitter reportedly said was a trademark violation. The new app is called “UberSocial.” Additionally, developers made other tweaks and changes to the apps and the service back-end. When the dust cleared, Twitter restored API access to UberMedia apps yesterday. Twitter still recommends that you use one of the official Twitter clients for Android, iOS, and Blackberry, but for the time being, fans of UberSocial and Twidroyd will be able to use their favorite clients again. AdChoices广告last_img
