Submission + - Twitter API changes lead to demise of Twit Cleaner (

netbuzz writes: "Twit Cleaner, a four-year-old web app reportedly used by hundreds of thousands of people to clear inactive or overactive tweeters from their Twitter accounts, is the latest victim of Twitter’s controversial API changes, as the site’s sole proprietor, Si Dawson says: “It's simply technically impossible for me to continue, due to the radically tightened limits that Twitter introduced with v1.1.” While Dawson says he understands Twitter’s need to do what’s best for the company and its community, “Unfortunately, it limits developers to largely trivial applications (although I'm sure they'd disagree). Any of us who were doing more intense analysis are in some kind of pain.”"
