30 May Twitter Updates Its API Forcing 3rd Party Apps to Remove Core Functionality
Please Note: Due to Twitter API changes, ManageFlitter is no longer allowing to unfollow or follow users. The plug has been pulled.
You can find the message below on their website:
Please note. As per Twitter’s request, all Follow and Unfollow features have been removed.– ManageFlitter
Without allowing users to find and remove useless and fake accounts, the main reason why people used this app in the first place, ManageFlitter is unlikely to survive. It’s unfortunate. It used to be one of the best tools around for managing Twitter followers and outlasted many of its competitors.
Unless Twitter updates and restores its API, allowing this functionality to work, ManageFlitter will probably disappear and follow the fate of many other Twitter management tools that are no longer around.
It’s possible it might evolve into something else, but with Twitter closing its API and effectively killing 3 party apps, it’s unlikely to ever become the effective tool it became known for.
