Twitter has cut off nearly every Twitter client, and most of them are subscription-based apps. The developers are working on dealing with it, but that’s going to take time. Here’s how to cancel a subscription to Tweetbot or other Twitter clients.

The problem started on January 13, when popular Twitter clients such as Tweetbot, Twitterific, and Echofon stopped working. However, others did not.

As a result, users could not log into their accounts or view their timelines. At first, developers thought it was a bug, but Twitter later revealed that it was intentional and updated its developer’s agreement with a clause prohibiting app developers from making their own Twitter clients.

How to cancel a subscription to an app

Tapbots, the creator of apps such as Tweebot, is working with Apple to cancel any subscription renewals automatically, and developers of other apps may be doing the same. However, users can manually cancel their subscriptions now, and not wait for the process to lurch to a conclusion.

  1. Open Settings on an iPhone or iPad.
  2. Tap your Apple ID.
  3. Next, select Subscriptions. This presents a list of active and expired app subscriptions.
  4. Find the subscription for your Twitter client app, tap on it, and hit the Cancel Subscription button.

A popup will appear asking to confirm the cancellation and noting that users can still access the subscription until the renewal due date. Tap on the Confirm button to proceed.

There is a call on social media for folks to ask Apple for a refund instead. This is within users’ rights, of course, but the fault is more on Twitter, and not on the developers.

We here at AppleInsider are cancelling our subscriptions because there’s no telling how long the process is going to take.

As far as we are concerned, the developers are entitled to the few dollars that they might get for the last week of confusion, since they had nothing to do with the cut-off.
