Twitter Suspends UberTwitter & Twidroyd for Policy Violations
Twitter has just announced in its user help center that it has “suspended UberTwitter and twidroyd for violating our policies.” The Twitter @support account tweeted an hour ago that users “may experience some problems and errors when using the site or your Twitter apps. We’re aware of the problem and are taking action.”
Twitter acknowledged that it normally suspends “hundreds of applications” that violate policies, but this time around it is sharing this information “because today’s suspension may affect a larger number of users.”
The announcement goes on to suggest users that normally use Twitter with Twidroyd or UberTwitter try Twitter for Blackberry, Twitter for Android or other official Twitter apps.
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.
We are committed to helping you continue to use Twitter during the disruption of these applications. You can download Twitter for Blackberry, Twitter for Android and other official Twitter apps here. You can also try our mobile web site or apps from other third-party developers.
We’ve reached out to Twitter, UberTwitter and Twidroyd for comment but haven’t yet received a response. We will update this story as soon as we do.
