UberTwitter si Echofon suspendate de Twitter


In cursul serii trecute Twitter a luat decizia de a suspenda aplicatiile UberTwitter, Twidroyd si Echofon interzicandu-le sa foloseasca API-urile Twitter pentru o perioada nelimitata de timp. Compania Twitter a acuzat dezvoltatorii acestor aplicatii de incalcarea regulilor privind folosirea marcii Twitter, incalcarea regulilor privind limitarea mesajelor directe la doar 140 de caractere si modificarea mesajelor utilizatorilor prin includerea de reclame. Compania care produce toate cele 3 aplicatii suspendate se numeste UberMedia si a anuntat ca un update pentru fiecare dintre ele va fi disponibil in viitorul apropiat in AppStore iar UberTwitter isi va schimba numele in UberSocial.

Pana una alta aplicatiile ar trebui sa aiba functionalitat limitata asa ca daca observati ca vreuna dintre cele 3 nu functioneaza atunci stiti care este cauza. Daca in AppStore va apare vreun update pentru oricare dintre cele 2 aplicatii pentru iOS, va recomand sa il instalati pentru ca va rezolva problema cu functionalitatea Twitter. Intre timp puteti folosi aplicatia Twitter, pe care eu o recomand cu caldura.

We ask all developers in the Twitter ecosystem to abide by a simple set of rules that are in the interests of our users, as well as the health and vitality of the platform as a whole.

We often take actions to enforce these rules; in fact, on an average day we turn off more than one hundred services that violate our API rules of the road. This keeps the ecosystem fair for everyone.

Today we suspended several applications, including UberTwitter, twidroyd and UberCurrent, which have violated Twitter policies and trademarks in a variety of ways. 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.

We’ve had conversations with UberMedia, the developer of these applications, about policy violations since April 2010, when they first launched under the name TweetUp – a term commonly used by Twitter users and a trademark violation. We continue to be in contact with UberMedia and hope that they will bring the suspended applications into compliance with our policies soon.
