Let me just start by saying that I am very disappointed in Twitter. Well, we know that with Twitter

How do you suppose MetroTwit will bypass Twitter's API restrictions? Does MetroTwit and Twitter have a deal that I don't know about?

Nothing he said requires calming down or the taking of any "chill pills".

If Tweetro becomes a "premium app" many users will switch to MetroTwit and then they will end up hitting the token limit. :/

Tweetro works fine for me. Am I missing something?

Pretty annoyed about this as well. No app - minus the official app - is immune to this silly 100K user limit until Twitter smartens up. The premium app is simply there to artifically cap the user limit, and it too will be in trouble over time.

Really if Twitter would get their heads out of their arses and have some condition in their API like make third party apps relay sponsored tweets or else they face the 100K limit, then we wouldn't be here, with Tweetbot charging $20 for their Mac OS X app for instance.

Yeah, don't ever log out or uninstall the app. If you do then you'll see the problem. :p

Having this same problem with iOS apps that use Google Maps, one being Maps +

Google only allows 100,000 queries just like twitter making the app useless.

MetroTwit will end up hitting the token limit regardless of Tweetro being paid or not. Since they're already at the limit, and people are having problems connecting, they'll move onto the next app until that next app hits its limit and so on.

Why doesn't either one of them just sell-out to Twitter so they can be the official Windows 8 app? It happened to Tweetie, remember?

That isn't really up to them to sell to twitter, twitter would need to want to buy them which they don't as AFAIk they already have an official client in the works.

Also weren't both of these apps out before the 100k limit?? If they were then aren't they allowed to double whatever their numbers were at the time the limit came into play if they already had more than 100k users?
