Twitter suspends Twidroyd, UberTwitter & UberCurrent clients


Twidroyd, UberTwitter and UberCurrent users were not able to use the apps because the Company has suspended them all for violating the terms of use.

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.”
