Uber-Problem for Many Twitter Users

Posted on 23. Feb, 2011 by in Wireless Industry

Twitter temporarily suspends Ubermedia’s twitter clients UberTwitter, Twidroyd, and UberCurrent for several violations leaving many users Tweetless.  In a statement Twitter mentions, “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”.  The suspension began on Feb. 18th and lasted two days.  During this period Ubermedia worked feverishly to revamp their apps to meet Twitter’s requirements.  One of these changes included renaming Ubertwitter to Ubersocial (download found hereand Twitdroyd’s here).  In Ubermedia’s official statement, its CEO Bill Gross, said that, “We began a process of changing the name three weeks ago by polling our users, and we’ve decided based on their input to change the product name to UberSocial, which we completed today.”
