UberMedia just sent out a response after Twitter suspended some of its applications Friday morning. 

Here's the response from Bill Gross, UberMedia's founder.

"Early Friday morning, Twitter shut off access to its service by several of our Twitter client applications:

UberTwitter, Twidroyd, and UberCurrent.  Twitter then notified us that they believed we were in violation of several provisions of their terms of service.

We were immediately in touch with Twitter, and the changes they asked us to make were very small.  As a result, we have completed the changes, and new apps are currently being posted to their respective stores.
Twitter has assured us that as soon as those changes were complete, they would reactivate our applications.

Twitter also asked us to modify the name of UberTwitter.  We began a process of changing the name three weeks ago by polling our users, and we've decided based on their input to change the product name to
UberSocial, which we completed today.

To our millions of loyal users, we appreciate your patience during this temporary period.  We look forward to continuing our innovations on the Twitter platform."
