News has arrived of the reinstatement of UberTwitter following the Twitter ban imposed on Friday.
“We’ve given the developers of twidroyd and UberSocial for Blackberry (formerly UberTwitter) access to the Twitter API again. Our initial review indicates that steps have been taken to remedy the violations for these applications” said the statement on Twitter Support. In a statement they also said “We will review these applications on an ongoing basis for compliance”.
There has been speculation on this blog and elsewhere that the Twitter organisation sees UberMedia, the owner of both these applications as a commercial threat. If so the suspension has done little to enhance the reputation of the official ‘Twitter for Blackberry’ app. Thousands of users condemned the application over the weekend
On hearing the news about UberSocial, @ericvice tweeted; “Ahhh the sound of 2.5 million copies of Twitter for Blackberry being simultaneously deleted. The bird can sing!http://bit.ly/UberDL“. It has been retweeted over 300 times in six hours.
