RIP: UberTwitter

OH NO! If you are a BlackBerry user like me, you’ll have notice that UberTwitter is gone. Such a sad day, I have used a bunch of different clients for my Berry for Twitter, but UberTwitter was the best one.

But what the hell happened? Well apparently UberTwitter twidroyd didn’t play by the rules, tsk tsk. Here’s the statement I found on the Twitter support page.

Regardless of how you access Twitter, we are dedicated to making Twitter better, faster and more reliable for you. As part of this effort, we ask applications that work with Twitter to abide by a simple set of rules that we believe are in the interests of our users, and the health and vitality of the Twitter platform as a whole. We often take actions to enforce these rules.

We have suspended UberTwitter and twidroyd for violating our policies.

Every day, we suspend hundreds of applications that are in violation of our policies. Generally, these apps are used by a small number of users. We are taking the unusual step of sharing this with you because today’s suspension may affect a larger number of users.

We are committed to helping you continue to use Twitter during the disruption of these applications. You can download Twitter for Blackberry, Twitter for Android and other official Twitter apps here. You can also try our mobile web site or apps from other third-party developers.

But now the really important question…what the heck am I going to use to tweet on my blackberry?
