Twitter confirmed that they specifically block the work of third-party applications, but did not explain why.
The Twitter administration tried to clarify the situation with failures in the operation of third-party applications - Tweetbot and Twitterific, which stopped working a few days ago, were actually deliberately blocked.
The official developer account said, “Twitter is enforcing long-standing API access rules. Because of this, some applications may not work. The message confirmed that the termination of third-party applications was caused intentionally, but otherwise the situation was almost not cleared up - the company did not clarify the rules that caused the blocking. If the company's management actually pursues some other goals, they remained unknown.
Earlier, one of the technical leaders of Twitter, in an interview with The Information journalists, confirmed that the blocking of third-party clients is intentional, but he also did not disclose the true reasons for these measures.
In the comments to the message of the administration of the service, users suggested that third-party clients do not show ads, which are now vital for maintaining the work of the social network - the new owner and head of the Elon Musk platform saves on everything and is actively looking for new sources of income.
