Is UberSocial The New UberTwitter?
By on February 19th, 2011

Update: Probably Yes. See updates below.

If you have been seeing tweets on saying that UberSocial is the new UberTwitter, you are probably falling into a pit. First off, UberTwitter was banned earlier today by Twitter and they would not risk coming out with a new name because of what they have at stake.

The owner of UberTwitter; UberMedia, own a large number of Twitter clients including the recently acquired . Performing such a circumnavigation on the ban Twitter put in place would ensure that the new client got blocked along with all other UberMedia properties.

Also the site UberSocial is hardly functional. The downloads don’t work and the website is just not owned by the owners of UberTwitter. I might be wrong but you can check the Who Is information and I doubt it is owned by UberMedia.

Rest aside, stay away from UberSocial and if you are in so much of a desperate need, check out the UberTwitter alternatives for Blackberry.

Updates Below

The UberSocial site is owned by UberMedia. I have been able to confirm it through Who IS information which match those from UberSocial and UberMedia. They are both hosted on the same name servers:

ns1.idealab.com
ns2.idealab.com

However, UberSocial has not yet been submitted to the World and neither is the site functional. Whether renaming a client to another name would give it another chance on Twitter is yet to be seen.

Nevertheless, this has been an endless fiasco of a client being banned and it coming into the system by changing it’s name to another brand altogether when it was already one of the most popular brands on a device.

Sorry for jumping the gun on this, but sometimes you miss out on researching things fully and then come across updates which require you to re-justify what you wrote. I will try and ensure that this does not happen in the future.

    You did look an ass on this – this was easily researchable and I hope UberSocial look on it kindly as I imagine you could lose them a fair few users…..best to get rid of a very poorly researched post…..life moves fast.
