Apple Rejects Tweetie Update Due to Bad Word

Apple Rejects Tweetie Update Due to Bad Word

Posted March 10, 2009 at 8:37pm by iClarified
In what seems like an endless string of terrible decisions in the App Store approval process; Apple has declined the Tweetie 1.3 update. Apple refused the update because an offensive word was found in the Trends section of the app.

Tweetie’s Trends feature scans the social network to find the most popular keywords that people are talking about. The offensive word was not put there by developers it was shown because thats what people on Twitter are talking about.

Rejecting this update has been likened to banning Safari because it can access objectionable content. Ridiculous.

Perhaps more developers should take a look at what Cydia has to offer.
