The purchase of Twitter by Elon Musk seems to have added new inconveniences to users. In addition to constant changes in the work of the social network and the arrangement of various elements in the “native” client, starting this morning, third-party applications stopped receiving feed updates.
Personally, I use Tweetbot on my smartphone and laptop, which has not been getting updates since 5 am. Twitterific, Flamingo, Talon and others are in the same situation.
At the same time, developers of third-party applications tried to contact Twitter, but have not yet received feedback from the social network.
We’re aware that Twitterrific is having problems communicating with Twitter. We don’t yet know what the root cause is, but we’re trying to find out. Please stay tuned and apologies.

Tweetbot and other clients are experiencing problems logging in to Twitter. We’ve reached out to Twitter for more details, but haven’t heard back.
We’re hoping this is just a temporary glitch and will let you know more as soon as we know more.

Musk himself has not commented on third-party applications and further work with them since the acquisition of Twitter. But they all depend on the company’s API. At this time, there is still no exact information about what the problematic situation is.
And while some popular clients are currently down, there are reportedly some still capable of receiving updates, such as the Fenix 2 and Albatross. But they also work only for some users.
