At the beginning of last week, Twitter began migrating users — in a forced format — to the new version of TweetDeck. This measure preceded the implementation of restrictions on the number of tweets that users can access on the platform.
At the time, several users confirmed that the old version of TweetDeck had stopped working, showing errors and failures to load content. It was quickly confirmed that this related to a platform change, as the contents of TweetDeck would carry over to the new version of it – and also, after 30 days, be restricted to Twitter Blue users only.
but, Quite silentlyIt looks like Twitter has reactivated the old version of TweetDeck. This version was still based on the old API of the platform, therefore, the bugs in it would be related to the fact that the API also has flaws.
But Twitter seems to have fixed these issues, allowing TweetDeck to fully function in the old version. The most curious thing is that those who had applications built using the old version of the API also regained the ability to use it. It is not known, at the moment, whether this measure will be applied permanently or if it will only be a temporary change by Twitter.
In recent months, Twitter has been implementing measures to restrict or block the use of the old API, so this “opening” is likely only temporary. However, it has allowed some third-party Twitter clients that used the old API to work properly again.
Unfortunately, everything indicates that Twitter will keep the original idea, and TweetDeck will become a feature that requires the use of Twitter Blue. Although it is now available in the old version, it should only be temporary.
