Twitter blocks popular Twitter app Fenix
Many users have been reporting issues with the Twitter app Fenix not working properly and now the creator of the app Matteo Villa has confirmed in a Google Plus post that Twitter has blocked the application, preventing it from posting tweets
“It seem that for unknown reasons Twitter somehow blocked the application, so we are no longer able to post tweets.
I’ve contacted Twitter support for explanations, I hope for a quick resolution.
Sorry for the inconvenience.”
UPDATE: It seems like it is possible to tweet again from the app. Everything is back to normal. There has been no explanation from Twitter on the reason why.
The $2.49 app available for Android gained popularity since it has many much requested features the official Twitter app doesn’t like Lists, TweetMarker, photo previews, internal browser, muting, multiple themes, multiple accounts and multiple drafts. As of now there seems no logical explanation for why Twitter has blocked the app. [Image source: Droid Life]
