Twitter has sent an e-mail to the respective app user that the apps are suspended due to not abiding the Twitter terms and conditions and they are violating the rules .
Twitter acknowledges that Twidroyd is a widely used app as they later say “We are taking the unusual step of sending out this letter because today’s suspension may affect a larger number of users.”
Suspension of apps is not unusual, everyday 100s of apps are shut-down but the suspension of widely used apps like these is unusual.
Matt Graves, a company spokesman for Twitter has replied to an email by pcmag, in an effort to acquire a more detailed explanation. “Today we suspended several applications, including UberTwitter, Twidroyd and UberCurrent, which have violated Twitter policies and trademarks in a variety of ways. These violations include, but aren’t limited to, a privacy issue with private Direct Messages longer than 140 characters, trademark infringement, and changing the content of users’ Tweets in order to make money.”
