UberTwitter and Twidroyd are now Live!
Twitter on Sunday restored access to its API for UberMedia, the company that produces twidroyd and UberTwitter, now named UberSocial.On Friday, the micro-blogging site suspended the UberTwitter and twidroyd apps for violating the company’s API policies; those issues have since been resolved.
“We’ve given the developers of twidroyd and UberSocial for Blackberry (formerly UberTwitter) access to the Twitter API again,” Twitter said in a note on its support site. “Our initial review indicates that steps have been taken to remedy the violations for these applications.”
“When the developer updates twidroyd and Ubersocial, you’ll be able to download their updates to access Tweets again on these applications,” Twitter continued.
Twitter said last week that the two apps had violated its policies and trademarks in several ways, including a privacy issue with private Direct Messages longer than 140 characters, trademark infringement, and changing the content of users’ Tweets in order to make money. Twitter said it had been in discussions with UberMedia, the company that produces the apps, since April 2010 but had not reached a resolution.
In the wake of the suspension, UberSocial said via Twitter that it had changed the UberTwitter name to UberSocial “to be a better partner with Twitter.” Yesterday, it tweeted that “Twitter has approved our changes, and we expect to provide a new version in about an hour.”
