Ubersocial Bounces Back

It’s been slightly more than 24 hours since Twitter reinstated API access to UberMedia for its twidroyd and UberSocial for Blackberry applications. According to TwitterSource data for the past hour (at 6.30 pm Pacific), Ubersocial for Blackberry (formerly known as Ubertwitter) is currently the third most popular client for reading Tweets (6.181%).

Twitter’s Blackberry client has dropped back to number four (6.153%). Prior to the cut-off on Friday, Ubertwitter was the second most popular client (7.3%) and Twitter for Blackberry was number four (6.2%).

Twitter.com is still the primary way people read tweets (35%).

Mid-Sunday afternoon, Twitter support announced that twidroyd and Ubersocial for Blackberry had regained access to the Twitter API.

When the developer updates twidroyd and Ubersocial, you’ll be able to download their updates to access Tweets again on these applications.

Loyal Blackberry customers spread the word.

  6. Mobile Web : 2.810%
  7. Echofon Web : 2.800%

And Twidroyd? Monday’s 24-hour data (6.30) have it at position 33 (0.335%) and last-hour data have it at position 20 (0.463%). When I checked “last week” stats on Saturday, it was ranked 18th (0.817%). It is competing with Twitter for Android, which currently (6.30) ranks 8th (1.958%).

As I noted Friday, I’m no fan of the men behind the 10-month old company UberMedia. In April 2010, they launched as TweetUp — appropriating a name and a practice that grew organically before they existed. Later, after Twitter objected, they became PostUp. Still later, after buying UberTwitter (with Blackberry and iPhone clients), they became UberMedia. They also bought EchoFon (iPhone) and Twidroyd (Android). Rumors are rampant that they are on the verge of buying Tweetdeck; if so, I will regretfully find another client, since I’ve been using Tweetdeck since it launched and have been an evangelist for the app.

On Friday, I analyzed how people read tweets using Twitter client data from TwitterSource. This post analyzed what happened in the (approximately) 24 hours since UberMedia products were again allowed to access the Twitter API.
