Updates from the innovative and colorful social media hub Twimbow

The Rainbow vanished

Hi folks,

today is a sad day here in Twimbowland,

In the last communiques, Twitter discouraged the development of new applications replicating the core Twitter Experience, called “Traditional Clients”, among which Twimbow is included.

They outlined some rules ( read here https://dev.twitter.com/blog/current-status-api-v1.1 ) which disheartened us and now we have no longer enthusiasm to continue our adventure.

Since our first day we tried to go along with the wishes that you (our dearest Twimblers) wrote in your feedbacks, and we tried to develop Twimbow accordingly.

All those that earlier were just Twitter’s “ best practices” about their data visualization, have become rules too binding for us. We want to create innovative products, no one can force us not to stun our client or to visualize data not our own way.

We made huge efforts to launch our mobile app for all the platforms out there, but, reluctantly, we cancelled those projects.

From today we won’t work on Twimbow anymore, but it will be available until Twitter will be upgraded to 1.1 API version ( probably within the next 6 months).

We want to thank warmly those of you who were supportive towards us in this wonderful adventure called Twimbow.

From now on the Twimbow’s spirit will live on Flamingow, you can read more about it here

    That’s to bad. I really enjoyed Twimbow and was really looking forward to seeing your BB10 app. Good luck in your future endeavours.

    Bypassing Twitter API is very easy and should not need much changes in the code…
    Will you opensource your code ?

    This really sucks! Is there no way to keep Twimbow running? Are there any alternatives out there? Really a sad day…

    This is really sad news. I liked being able to color code my feeds. I wish there were some way to keep your client up, even if you’re not doing further developments anymore.
