Twidroyd, UberSocial Back online
Two of the applications developed by Pasadena-based UberMedia, the Twitter client applications firm headed by Idealab's Bill Gross, are back online, according to Twitter. Over the weekend, Twitter said it had reactivated API support for Twidroyd and UberSocial (formerly UberTwitter), after UberMedia made the changes it requested of those applications. On Friday, Twitter had declared war on UberMedia and suspended a number of UberMedia's applications for unspecified, violations of its terms of service. Shortly thereafter, Gross said UberMedia would make any changes requested by Twitter to get those applications re-activated; those changes included renaming its UberTwitter clients to UberSocial, as well as a number of other limitations on its clients.
