Twitter Restricts Developer Access to API, Removes Hundreds or Thousands of Apps
Twitter had reportedly removed more than 143,000 apps for violating its policies in between April and June 2018.
In addition to rolling out more developer updates, the microblogging platform is also introducing stricter and more thorough application process for developers seeking access to its API.
The company says that apps with high volumes of engagement will also have increased accountability. Meanwhile, users will now find it easier to report apps that violate Twitters rules using the new “Report a bad app” option in its Help Center.
