UberTwitter and TwiDroyd Applications Get Their Hands Slapped By Twitter

Users of the UberTwitter and TwiDroyd applications found themselves without access to Twitter this weekend, as Twitter suspended access to the API for both app developers. In an unusual move, Twitter announced that it was suspending access, apparently due to the fact that they knew this would impact a large number of Twitter users.  While Twitter suspends access to applications every day, they rarely make a public notice of it.

Twitter did announce today that the connectivity for both apps has been restored and the app developers are now in compliance with the Twitter API terms of use. Additional information can be found at the announcement page.

No estimates have been provided on how many Twitter users this could have impacted. An interesting twist, however, is that UberTwitter has now been rebranded as UberSocial.
