The Return of UberMedia's Twitter Apps

By  |  Friday, February 18, 2011 at 2:31 pm

UberMedia has released a statement saying that it’s responded to Twitter’s concerns about its apps and this morning’s blockade against them is over:

Early Friday morning, Twitter shut off access to its service by several of our Twitter client applications:  UberTwitter, Twidroyd, and UberCurrent.  Twitter then notified us that they believed we were in violation of several provisions of their terms of service.

We were immediately in touch with Twitter, and the changes they asked us to make were very small.  As a result, we have completed the changes, and new apps are currently being posted to their respective stores.  Twitter has assured us that as soon as those changes were complete, they would reactivate our applications.

Twitter also asked us to modify the name of UberTwitter.  We began a process of changing the name three weeks ago by polling our users, and we’ve decided based on their input to change the product name to UberSocial, which we completed today.

To our millions of loyal users, we appreciate your patience during this temporary period.  We look forward to continuing our innovations on the Twitter platform.

Bill Gross, CEO

UberMedia, Inc.

    If I can't use Tweetbot on my iPhone, I don't use Twitter. Period.

    After Twitter's move to devalue competitors to their own Twitter clients, I've been waiting to see if they're actually going to cut them off. If they do, that's the end of it for me.
