Just months after first hitting the Twitter token max, Falcon Pro must once again sidestep the limit
Falcon Pro, one of the leading third-party Twitter apps for Android, has once again hit the 100,000 active user token limit. The token limit is imposed by Twitter on all third-party clients with which it doesn't have a direct partnership, and it's not the first time Falcon has fallen run up against this particular wall. The app first hit 100,000 tokens back in late February, and the solution today is the same one employed back then -- revoke the original tokens and require everyone to sign in again, thus resetting the counter for a few more months.
It's a temporary workaround, and far from an ideal solution, but for smaller third-party apps like Falcon it's the only real option available. In a Twitter post, developer Joaquim Vergès describes it as "the least dodgy solution." If you're a Falcon Pro user, there's a new update to the app going out now that'll require you to log in again once it's installed. If you've yet to give it a try, you can pick it up from Google Play using the button above.
