Twitter officials agree to new UberSocial

Twitter late Sunday night announced it has reactivated UberMedia‘s access to its API. This reactivation follows the block of Friday night when Twitter revoked the Pasadena-based company’s access citing violations of its terms and conditions. Specifically relating to privacy, monetization and trademark violations.

The popular Blackberry app, UberTwitter, is now officially known as UberSocial while the Android app twidroyd will make no name changes. Both apps have complied with Twitter’s requests to correct the violations.

The mircoblogging site’s support team posted a message to users informing them of the developments:

“We’ve given the developers of twidroyd and UberSocial for Blackberry (formerly UberTwitter) access to the Twitter API again. Our initial review indicates that steps have been taken to remedy the violations for these applications.

When the developer updates twidroyd and Ubersocial, you’ll be able to download their updates to access Tweets again on these applications.”

@UberSoc, the official Twitter account for UberSocial also tweeted the good news to its users/followers within moments of Twitter’s decision.

One of the key changes UberMedia has made to comply with Twitter’s terms and conditions in the new version is to keep the tweet character restrictions. Users will no longer be able to tweet more then 140 characters from a protected account or in a Direct Message.

“Thanks for your loyalty and patience. Spread the word, You can Download #UberSocial (formerly #UberTwitter),” tweeted @UberSoc alerting users to the now live UberSocial app.
