Twitter apps restored over the weekend

By Hayley Tsukayama

Twydroid and UberTwitter, now called UberSocial, are back in the Android and BlackBerry stores. The two popular apps were shut down by Twitter on Friday for violating the micro-blogging service's terms of service.

The services were restored Saturday. UberSocial was a Twitter trending topic Monday morning, as users flocked back to the service and curious newcomers who'd heard about the controversy started downloading the app.
