Twidroyd Reinstated, New Version Available

If you’ve been jonesing for some Twidroyd since Twitter suspended it on Friday, your wait is over.

Earlier today, Twitter announced that the popular Android app has had its API access restored, now that parent company UberMedia has taken steps “to remedy the violations.” Shortly after, the Twidroyd team announced that updated versions have been released.

TwitLonger support is gone in the new version; not surprising, since one of Twitter’s complaints was that DMs longer than 140 characters were being handled in a way that might compromise privacy.

What do you think, was Twitter heavy-handed in handling this situation, or were they justified in the way they enforced their policies?
