Tweetium app end support

Well, folks, August 16, 2018 will be a day to remember not just for Twitter users but for third-party Twitter developers most especially Tweetium Pro developers.

Twitter Inc, intends to make several changes to their third-party client Application Programming Interface (API) such as the the ‘Streaming API’ without any replacement. However, this replacement will prevent stiff competition against Twitter’s very own client; therefore, several third-party Twitter clients developers will be forced to close shop.

Say goodbye to Tweetium Pro

Tweetium windows 10 discontinued

Tweetium Pro on the other hand, is a premium Windows Twitter client who has announced that its client will no longer be available from the Windows Store.

The developers also added that:

Therefore, Tweetium Pro users can say goodbye to features such as:

  • Push notifications – immediate toast notifications when users mention, retweet, favorite tweets, or follow users.
  • Multiple accounts – Tweetium Pro users can easily switch between up to 7 different Twitter accounts.
  • Integrated news reading – Article previews and an embedded reading experience powered by Newseen.

Meanwhile, Twitter has intensified their support for Windows 10 with a new PWA so as to meet up with their scalability; however, Twitter’s own client still has much to in order to gain dominance against third-party Twitter client apps.
