Twitter removes client sourcing for tweets on the web

Twitter

Twitter has removed sourcing on individual tweets showing what clients were used to post them, a change that’s new on the web but has already existed on mobile, as the company works through its relationship with third-party clients on the ecosystem.


It might be polite to include a “via” or “h/t” in your tweets that contain information gleaned from other users, but don’t think Twitter will provide that same courtesy to tweets that are delivered by its third-party developers.

Twitter has now removed sourcing on individual tweets accessed on the web that used to indicate which clients or apps were used to publish the tweet, such as Twitter for iPhone, the web, or Tweetbot for iOS. A Twitter spokesperson said the change, which had already been implemented on mobile, is to “simplify” the information being presented, but it comes as Twitter cracks down on external use of its API by third-party developers.
