What Twitter apps closed down?

Here at EverythingTwitter we have reviewed hundreds of apps. Well many of them come and go. Some got bought. Others closed shop when APIs changed. And some just lost the interest or funds of the developer.

One good way to keep up with your own privacy, and see what has closed, is to view your list of approved apps in your Twitter profile.  You should see the below after you log in.


Ours were always huge since we test everything.  So here is a bunch of apps that have closed. We may update this list over time so bookmark it!

  • TwitTruth – open from 2010 to 2012. told you if celebrities really used Twitter.
  • LocalPeoplereg – who knows when or why. We cannot find them anymore
  • Tw2buzz – imported Twitter peeps to Google Buzz. We know what happened there
  • TwtBizCard – started around 2009. Site goes to 63labs now
  • SocialWhale – Started in 2008 and closed in 2012
  • TwitHive – started in 2009 and gone by 2010. They said limited resources and interest
  • TwitHit – started around 2009. We cannot even find when it vanished
