Although it took a little why to go through the Twitter approval process, we're glad to let all you Twidroyd users out there know that services have now been restored. The recent suspension put in place by Twitter has been removed, and it is suggested that you grab the latest Twidroyd update if you're still seeing any issues.
As for why the popular app was suspended? UberMedia founder Bill Gross explained on Quora:
1. Twitter said that in UberTwitter and Twidroyd we use a tweet-elongation service named tmi.me that allows people to write more than 140 characters, and that this service may post private messages on a public website. At their request, we have removed this ability.
2. Twitter said that in UberCurrent we change links that are part of an affiliate program to be our own links. We don’t currently do this, but we removed all changing of links to eliminate any possibility of this.
3. Twitter said that they would like us to change the name UberTwitter, and we have changed the name to UberSocial, effective immediately.
