Popular micro-blogging site Twitter has suspended BlackBerry Twitter client UberTwitter and Android Twitter client Twidroyd, accusing the two of violating its rules.
According to Twitter’s claims, the concerned clients violated its policies regarding a privacy issue with private Direct Messages longer than 140 characters, altering the content of Twitter users’ posts to generate money, and trademark rules.
UberMedia, the parent company of UberTwitter and Twidroyd, has accumulated a large number of third-party Twitter clients, such as Tweetdeck, which rivals Twitter’s web & mobile clients.
UberMedia, which has been generating tones of money, was launched as TweetUp in April 2010. After some time the app changed itself to become PostUp, and following the deal with UberTwitter, it emerged as UberMedia.
Now, after being suspended by Twitter, UberMedia’s chief executive has announced that his app will get a new name- UberSocial.
