Twitter has been in the headlines since Friday, for banning three applications from the website and restoring the services last night.
Reportedly, the applications used by BlackBerry and Android phone users, namely UberTwitter, now UberSocial and Twidroyd, for breaching copyright, as per Twitter.
Both the applications belong to UberMedia and it is estimated that there are millions of users, who were affected by the suspension of the applications by Twitter on Friday.
"These violations include, but aren't limited to, a privacy issue with private Direct Messages longer than 140 characters, trademark infringement, and changing the content of users' tweets in order to make money," said Twitter spokesperson.
