Twidroyd gets suspended by Twitter…new version coming soon

Update: Twidroyd has just announced via their Twitter page that a new, compliant version of their application will soon be available on the Android market shortly!

Bad news for all you Twidroyd users out there (especially if you paid for Twidroyd Pro). In an official tweet from Twitter’s support account, Twitter has confirmed that they have suspended the Twidroyd application for violation of Twitter’s rules and regulations.

This is not the first time Twidroyd has been in trouble with the folks at Twitter. Several months ago, then-Twidroid was asked to change the application’s name to something a bit further-away-sounding from the official Twitter name.

Twidroyd is still available on the Android Market as of 1:30pm CST, but users are reporting that the application is no longer updating their timeline.

No official word from Twidroyd on whether or not this suspension is permanent, or whether they plan to work on an alternative application that doesn’t violate Twitter’s terms of service. An email to the folks at Twidroyd was not immediately returned.

We will update this story as we learn more. Meanwhile, head on over to the Twitter support page for more info.
