UberTwitter, Twidroyd, UberCurrent apps blocked

Twitter has blocked popular UberTwitter, Twidroyd and UberCurrent apps because they are said to have violated Twitter's API Terms of Service. This move was mentioned on Twitter's support post.

Matt Graves, a spokesman from Twitter provided additional explanation:

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.
