Seesmic Killing BlackBerry Support June 30th

Via their company blog yesterday, Seesmic updated BlackBerry users letting them know that the company would be ending support for Seesmic for BlackBerry on June 30th in favor of their more popular mobile operating systems like Android, iOS, and Windows Phone 7.  In my opinion, Seesmic for BlackBerry was no third party Twitter client to write home about in comparison to its Android and iOS counterparts, but, quite honestly, this is really the case for more cross platform BlackBerry  Twitter clients, as the iOS, Android, and Windows Phone 7 versions are much better than their BlackBerry counterparts.

What should be noted here is that Seesmic is not some small-time, fly by night, development company just trying to get by.  With Twitter acquiring TweetDeck, Seesmic is easily one of  the biggest third-party social media tools companies on the web and they’ve decided that continuing to create tools for the BlackBerry, which, even though is losing market share, is growing in users with over 65 million of them, isn’t worth the development effort.

That’s very telling RIM… We hope you are paying attention…

SocialScope Giving Instant Invites – Capitalizing On UberTwitter’s Suspension

SocialScope, the popular third party BlackBerry Twitter client, is giving out instant invites.  BlackBerry users who use SocialScope swear by it.  The only problem, however,  is that it is usually hard to get because it is still in closed beta and available by invite only.

There is no question that SocialScope, by providing instant invites to those that request them, is capitalizing on the suspension of UberTwtter for violation of Twitter policies.  Since being suspended UberMedia has changed the name of UberTwitter to UberSocial and corrected the issues that caused its suspension, but, they are still waiting for Twitter to approve UberSocial.  If you were affected and need third party BlackBerry Twitter client to get you by, you could do a lot worse than SocialScope.

Twitter Suspends UberMedia Twitter Clients TwiDroyd And UberTwitter For Policy Violations

For all you UberTwitter and TwiDroyd users out there that are wondering why you third party Twitter client doesn’t seem to be working, it is because Twitter has suspended both of these popular Twitter clients from UberMedia for violating Twitter’s policies.

Regardless of how you access Twitter, we are dedicated to making Twitter better, faster and more reliable for you. As part of this effort, we ask applications that work with Twitter to abide by a simple set of rules that we believe are in the interests of our users, and the health and vitality of the Twitter platform as a whole. We often take actions to enforce these rules.

We have suspended UberTwitter and twidroyd for violating our policies.

Every day, we suspend hundreds of applications that are in violation of our policies. Generally, these apps are used by a small number of users. We are taking the unusual step of sharing this with you because today’s suspension may affect a larger number of users.

We are committed to helping you continue to use Twitter during the disruption of these applications. You can download Twitter for Blackberry, Twitter for Android and other official Twitter apps here. You can also try our mobile web site or apps from other third-party developers.

I can’t speak to the impact of TwiDroyd being shut down for Android users, but, UberTwitter is probably the most popular thrid party Twitter client readily available on the BlackBerry and a gazillion to the 2nd power users use it…

Something tells me that the number of requests for Social Scope invite codes is about to go through the roof.
