Fenix has given an update on the matter via Twitter. Users should now be able to post new tweets. No word yet on what caused the issue. The developer also stated that Fenix should be back up in the Play Store in a few hours.


Issues between Twitter and third-party developers are nothing new. Twitter has wanted a more “consistent” user experience for a few years now and third-party devs are paying the price. One such setback is giving developers access to 100k tokens for their customers. Popular Twitter client Falcon Pro has even created a workaround to allow access to new users.

However, in the case of the new but very popular Twitter application Fenix, the issue seems to be a bit different. Matteo Villa, creator of Fenix, has recently posted to Google+ claiming users are no longer allowed to post new tweets:

It seem that for unknown reasons Twitter somehow blocked the application, so we are no longer able to post tweets. I’ve contacted Twitter support for explanations, I hope for a quick resolution. Sorry for the inconvenience.

All other aspects of the application continue to work without issue (refreshing the Timeline, for example). While the developer waits for a response from Twitter on the matter, he has chosen to remove his application from the Play Store to mixed responses. Some users are asking for refunds on Twitter and Google+, while others patiently wait for a fix.

As a user of Fenix, I hope that this issue is resolved quickly. We will be keeping an eye on the Play Store and waiting for a response from the developer. We will be sure to update this post once an answer has been given.
