I don't think MH are obligated to do anything tbh. Though tweetie 2 beta access was offered, I was under the impression that this was a bonus. What we were paying for was the tweetie 1 license. The beta access was nothing more than advertising for atebits. Loren still gets the money, and tweetie 2 gets a nice user base. I don't think there's any legal standing in this.
That being said, I'm sure that the directorate aren't happy about the situation, and I think it sucks that Loren went into this bundle with the knowledge that this might happen. Actually, I'm more offended by the lack of communication from him really. I guess that Twitter do have some control over what he's saying, but I feel that he owes it to us to at least give us an adequate explanation, and a realistic timescale.
I do want tweetie 2, but other than that, I have little respect for Loren now for selling out and leaving his users high and dry. It’s a good thing that he now works for Twitter, cos I certainly would not be interested in supporting him as an indie dev after this.
Go Orange GO!
