Apps of a Feather

If you use a third-party app, such as our own Twitterrific, upcoming changes at Twitter will significantly affect how you use the service.

An API that all apps use to receive a continuous stream of updates for push notifications and timeline refresh is going away. Twitter has not yet provided third-party developers with a replacement.

At this point, all we can do is raise awareness about what’s happening. To this end, third-party developers have joined together to explain the situation in more detail: please take a moment to visit the Apps of a Feather site.

For the past 11 years, we’ve worked hard to make a great experience for our customers. It’s not hyperbole to say Twitter is putting it all at risk on June 19th, 2018.
