discontinues iOS apps citing new Twitter rules

This is a bummer:, the social news service built on top of Twitter (and Facebook), todayannounced it is killing its curation apps for iPhone and iPad. The company is blaming Twitter for the move and says it wants to focus on its Digg efforts instead.

They claim this will not impact’s great daily emails, but who knows how much data you’ll be able to get out of Twitter moving forward. is the first thing I check in the morning to see what’s going on in my world. It always highlights interesting stories by seeing what my Twitter and Facebook friends are up to. I don’t use Digg and don’t plan to any time soon.
