Falcon Pro hits Twitter token limit again, fix is already available

falcon pro for twitter banner

Well, it’s been a while since Twitter developers found themselves in a pinch after the social network started imposing a 100,000 user limit on third-party clients. Falcon Pro was one such app that was affected by the limit, quickly hitting the mark after gaining wild success on Android.

The developers quickly rectified the issue by somehow opening up a new round of tokens for everyone, but they have once again hit that limit. Fortunately it seems like a similar “fix” is already available, with the developers Tweeting that we should be seeing an update in the Google Play Store within minutes.

Just like before, folks will have to re-login to get an updated Token. This system ensures anyone who has since stopped using the app will involuntarily give their token up as opposed to having to keep our fingers crossed that people would release their tokens on their own accord. I know — it sounds more ridiculous each time you think about it.

That Twitter won’t budge on its stance is quite baffling considering how anti-competitive and anti-consumer this is, but that’s the world we live in right now. If you’re still supporting and using Twitter, and you use Falcon Pro to do your daily bidding, be sure to find your update in the Google Play Store.

    Twitter is fucking lame for that policy.

      Twitter is lame without Falcon Pro

    That policy makes sense. They want a product that has a consistent experience, and is updated quickly with new features they might choose to roll out.

    They will gladly hand out a larger token limit to apps that do something other than “Be another twitter client”

    There already way too many of those.

      I’m afraid I don’t understand what you mean. Why would limiting the number of people alter the experience?

    Falcon is quite good if you’re a Twitter power user, but official client is good enough for everyone else, i’ve used both and gone back to official client after latest Holo update.

    I don’t see why the developer doesn’t create multiple tokens under different app names, and use them as “plug-ins” to the actual app. If the main app’s token hits its limit, install Plugin A, which makes Falcon Pro use a different token. Problem solved.
