If you’re one of the many, many UberTwitter users out there then you might have noticed your application stopped refreshing and only showed two new tweets, both from “Support”, saying the service has been suspended due to violation of Twitter policies. This has brought chaos among BlackBerry users and most of them don’t even know who to run to, and by who I mean which client.
It seems like, even though Twitter has very few, simple rules to be followed, some applications don’t and they have to make sure their services is provided as well as possible, which is why they have suspended UberTwitter, both BlackBerry and iPhone versions, as well as Twidroyd.
Here’s Twitter’s official statement on the subject:
Regardless of how you access Twitter, we are dedicated to making Twitter better, faster and more reliable for you. As part of this effort, we ask applications that work with Twitter to abide by a simple set of rules that we believe are in the interests of our users, and the health and vitality of the Twitter platform as a whole. We often take actions to enforce these rules.
We have suspended UberTwitter and twidroyd for violating our policies.
Every day, we suspend hundreds of applications that are in violation of our policies. Generally, these apps are used by a small number of users. We are taking the unusual step of sharing this with you because today’s suspension may affect a larger number of users.
For those of you who used UberTwitter, you can download Twitter for BlackBerry while the problem gets solved (if it does).
