Twitter Reinstates UberSocial & Twidroyd Apps Over Privacy & Trademark Violations [guardian.co.uk]
Twitter has reinstated the banned BlackBerry and Android apps, UberSocial and Twidroyd, after a weekend in the sin bin for privacy and trademark violations.
The popular UberMedia-owned apps were suspended on Friday for a number of serious-looking policy violations affecting "a large number of users". UberMedia estimates its apps have "millions" of users.
"These violations include, but aren't limited to, 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 on Friday. The $10bn-valued company really did pull no punches.
