Twitter officially bans third-party clients like Tweetbot, Twitterrific

20 January 2023 7

It was last week when third-party Twitter client apps' developers and users were left confused about why these apps were unable to access Twitter. It appeared to be some kind of bug but we finally have a definitive answer and it is not what you would have wanted it to be. Twitter has officially banned third-party client apps by updating its developer rules.

The update to developer rules was made quietly and was first spotted by folks over at Engadget. The update is in the form of a new clause added to the restrictions section of the agreement. It prohibits the “use or access of the Licensed Materials to create or attempt to create a substitute or similar service or product to the Twitter Applications.”

It simply means if you were using any of the third-party clients like Tweetbot and Twitterrific, you will not be able to use them to access Twitter anymore. This is the reason developers have started to plan what they should do next. Twitterrific has already taken down its apps from stores and the Tweetbot team has started working on developing a Mastodon client.

Even though Twitter has not shared details officially, it is not hard to guess why it decided to ban third-party clients. Elon Musk clearly wants the official Twitter app to be the only way of accessing the platform. This would allow him to show ads to more users and eventually convert more of them to paying Twitter Blue subscribers. It is essentially Musk's way of increasing revenue through ads and subscriptions.
