Twitter will block third-party clients from June 19th

Blocking access to streaming services in his Twitter API di made it block all unofficial clients and all apps, so the only solution to use Twitter will be to use the official app.

This is not the first time Twitter has tried to limit the use of third-party apps and clients, but now it could be the definitive one.

The first attempt to block third-party clients dates back to 2012, when Twitter introduced the token into its APIs. Not so easy to explain, but basically Twitter has introduced a rule that limits any third-party app on Twitter to just 100,000 users. Once this limit is reached, the app cannot accept new users until some people leave the App. That's why there are many third-party apps like Twitter clients: when an app reaches the maximum allowed users it is removed from Google Play Store and on the other hand another one is published.

Just recently, the famous app Flamingo was removed from the Google Play Store when it reached the maximum quota of its token.

The token share is still a controversial measure, but this new move is aimed at completely eliminating access to the streaming services API, a frontal attack, total to unofficial apps. If it really should pass, as announced, from June 19th, it would mean certain death for all third-party Twitter apps.

To be honest, the official official Twitter app has come a long way since it took its first steps. But the fact that the social does everything possible to block in every competition (if this can be defined) a criticizable practice, at least from the point of view of public relations. Seconds some also shows that Twitter feels distressed.
