Twitterrific: New Rules, Same Road

August 22, 2012

Like most third-party developers, we had been anticipating an announcement regarding Twitter’s API for several months. Twitter had hinted at new guidelines designed to make users’ experience with the social network more “consistent” across the board, but we really weren’t sure what it would mean for the future of Twitterrific. Now we know and can speak towards what the future holds for our efforts on the platform.

For the past several months, we’ve been working on a major update to Twitterrific that we’re very excited about. There were concerns that this new version might end up on the cutting room floor prior to Twitter’s announcement, but after reviewing the new restrictions and speaking with the team at Twitter, we’re pleased to report that our development plans remain unchanged.

We’re re-doubling our efforts to bring you an all-new version of Twitterrific: one that complies with Twitter’s new guidelines and makes reading and posting to Twitter even easier and more fun.

You’ll be hearing more about this new version in the days and weeks ahead, but for now we want to assure our loyal users that we’ll be continuing to develop for Twitter for the foreseeable future. We hope you’ll continue to support our efforts to bring you the kind of quality software you’ve come to expect from the Iconfactory. Stay tuned folks, the best is yet to come.
