Twitter is killing third party clients

Recently twitter announced an access limitation on API. For that reason third party applications who pull data from twitter can’t continue. For this reason most of the major third party twitter clients are closing with their application.

MetroTwit was the most popular twitter client for Windows. Due to this limitation they are closing support and new development of this application. You can’t download the executable from the official site. If you want you can download the executable from FileHippo. By doing this twitter want to kill the third party client popularity. They want to make their own client application most popular in the market, which is TweetDeck. It is a nice twitter client. It has a web based version also. You can manage multiple account with TweetDeck. Personally I find this much faster than twitter website.
