Like we told you guys before, UberTwitter and other Twitter clients, including Twidroyd, were suspended due to violation of policies. Many BlackBerry users who were using UberTwitter panicked when their timelines stopped refreshing, most of them even thought UberTwitter was dead and would not come back, but fear not! UberMedia has released their official statement in which they inform of the coming of a new version that fixes all the aspects of this application that violates the Twitter policies, as well of the coming of a new name which, by users choice, will be UberSocial. Hit the break for the full statement.
STATEMENT FROM UBERMEDIA REGARDING TWITTER’S SUSPENSION OF SERVICE TO UBERTWITTER, TWIDROYD AND UBERCURRENT
PASADENA, CA – February 18, 2011 – 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.
