Twitter Suspends Rival’s Mobile Apps
Twitter on Friday suspended three major mobile third-party applications for allegedly violating the company’s use policies.
The social networking company announced in a blog post that it cut off UberTwitter, which is for the Blackberry platform, Twidroyd, for Android devices, and UberCurrent, which can be used on iPhones and iPads . All three are owned by UberMedia, which has been in the news recently because it’s planning to acquire popular Twitter client TweetDeck.
To complicate matters, TweetDeck competes directly with Twitter’s Web and mobile clients.
