UberMedia: We've Made Twitter's Changes, Waiting On Twitter
Pasadena-based UberMedia, the Twitter client apps firm which is part of Idealab, said Friday afternoon that it has "completed the changes" requested by Twitter in its applications, in response to Twitter's shutdown of UberTwitter, Twidroyd, and UberCurrent. Among those changes are the names of UberTwitter being renamed to UberSocial, which the firm said has been completed as of today. UberTwitter said the changed apps are currently being posted to their respective stores, and that Twitter has assured it that "as soon as those changes were complete, they would reactivate our applications." Twitter had shut off applications this morning due to "violating our policies."
