UberTwitter changed its name to UberSocial and is up and running! Download the new app.
Don’t be alarmed. But prepare to be disappointed:
So far Twitter has said the apps were “suspended due to policy violations,” and that they suspend hundreds of applications on a daily basis for the same reasons. As for today’s explanation, Twitter said,”We are taking the unusual step of sharing this with you because today’s suspension may affect a larger number of users.”
The Huffington Post reports that roughly, twenty percent of all daily updates to Twitter are sent using apps from UberMedia , the company that owns both UberTwitter, Twidroyd and TweetDeck (another popular third-party Twitter app). While the suspension doesn’t seem to have a due date, waiting it out may be tough for those already experiencing twithdrawls.
