Twitter Is Blocking Third-Party Clients Like Tweetbot And Twitterrific

Another smart move by Elon Musk.

I expect you don’t want to use almost any of the major third-party clients on Twitter, as it looks like Elon Musk has blocked them from accessing Twitter’s API for some reason.

According to internal Slack messages seen by The Information, the social media platform intentionally suspended those third-party apps.

In one post, a senior computer programmer in a real sense says: “Outsider application suspensions are purposeful.

As indicated by The Edge, outsider Twitter clients have been broken since essentially Thursday night, and the engineers say they actually have no sort of update.

Twitter didn’t quickly answer a solicitation for input from Mashable.

Since Thursday evening, users have been complaining that they can’t use Tweetbot, Twitterrific and other apps you can use to scroll through Twitter directly without Twitter’s software.

What’s more, I truly need an authority public proclamation,” Tweetbot co-maker Paul Haddad said in a Mastodon post on Sunday.

We have a large number of subs. The third year update of the Tweetbot is due in a couple of weeks.

I want to know if we get cut permanently so that we can remove the app from sale and block them which obviously I don’t want to do.”

Twitterrific tweeted on Sunday: “Still no authority word on what’s happening. We apologize for the continuous disturbance.”

But, as with anything Musk does on Twitter, it’s not particularly exhaustive. Some applications like Gooney bird Fenix actually work for certain individuals.

While others don’t, depending on whether you’re using it on iOS or Android, The Verge reported that it’s surprisingly messy.
