So does anyone know how this will affect those that bought the nanoBundle and the Tweetie 2 beta?

EDIT:

Whoops, found the conversation in the Tweetie thread here

A waste of money!?!? You're paying at least $30/month for your iPhone and your pissed cause you spent a total of $6 (one time fee, I might add) to support an independent developer (or at least he was at the time)? This kind of attitude is rediculous. I paid for Tweetie 1, I paid for Tweetie 2 happily even though there was no "upgrade price" and I'd pay for whatever twitter iteration of tweetie comes up next. Imo, $3 for an app is a steal, especially when your supporting a one man team, who is independent of any other company (once again, until now). If you can't handle paying $3 dollars for something, than don't buy it. There are plenty of free apps you could have chosen (twitterific to name one) that may have fulfilled your needs.

Now that my rant is done, my 2 cents on the "buy-out"

I'm happy for Loren. He's been doing great programming and design for a while now and I'm happy to seem him get a break like this. That said, I think that he'll have a lot of work to do in the coming months in order to make Twitter for the iPhone (the new name of Tweetie) a competitor in a rapidly growing market of beautiful twitter apps. With Twiba and Chalk coming soon, and Twitterific already having a large name for itself, the twitter team has their work cut out for them. This also goes the other way, though. Twitter for iPhone (from now on referred to as TfiP) will have new twitter features before anybody else, which means the other apps will have to stay on their toes. It also means that since TfiP will be getting much more recognition as the "official" twitter app competitors will need to make sure that they are able to innovate and design in new and interesting ways in order to keep the attention of the masses.
All and all, these are interesting times, not just for twitter and atebits, but for the internet as a whole. As more and more computing is done on a mobile platform, I think we'll start to see a lot of mobile designers and programmers getting snapped up by big names.

In other news, Louie Mantia got hired by Apple today (or at least he officially announced it today)...

Really thats your argument? You really think its about the 6 bucks? You go right ahead and support him that's your right and choice. I however and judging from the reaction across the internet am not the only one, would rather not support those who lie and deceive there customers and supporters. I am all for the little guy making it and do not begrudge anyone from there success, but if it turns out you have no morals or integrity then sorry you lost me. sorry I am not jumping on the tweetie/loren fanboy team anytime soon.

Well when it comes to the iPhone app I'm not upset - we have got what we are promised. Okay it was set free after but that's life. I bought a camera and it was on sale 2 days after ... (Edit Yes, I was also a bit upset at the time as I could have used that money for better things but calm down very soon)

It's something different with the mac app. We have bought an app in a bundle where we also was promised to get an beta very soon. We have not got this. I don't want to call it something yet as I hope we get an statement here very soon. We are nearly 90 000 who have bought it and I think we have a right to get to know.

Like many MacHeisters, I was a little frustrated by the Tweetie announcement -- surely this acquisition must have been in train at the point when early access to the 2.0 beta was included in the nanobundle, and equally surely Tweetie will become free when it's the Twitter official app.

Having said that, I do wish Loren and atebits all the best. While part of me grieves that we won't see more lovely apps like Tweetie and Scribbles, I'm glad that Twitter's got such a fantastic coder.

The argument "But it's not fair!" didn't work when you were a screaming toddler and it holds just as much weight now.

No lies have been told (I don't remember seeing "buy Tweetie it'll never reduce in cost or be given away for free"), you were not scammed out of money (you got a great app for the money you paid that you couldn't get anywhere else cheaper *at that time*) and you were not forced to buy it (you had plenty of other apps to choose from that cost less or nothing at all).

This acquisition amounts to someone being recognized for their talent and hard work. It will spark similar leaps in innovative design and functionality as others seek to compete, and it looks like you won't have to pay for Tweetie again even if you did want to carry on using it. I fail to see an issue here.

So go gather up your toys and play nice.

yeah - they knew it when they did the bundle. they just wanted to make a quick buck before they get big money from twittert.

If you purchased Tweetie when it was being charged for, you were helping pay for the continued development of the product, and supporting the developer.

If you purchased Tweetie - it was WORTH money to you THEN, so why wouldn't it be now? There's no reason to be pissed off that it's free now. I'm sorry that you're selfish and that other people are going to get it for free now. No one forced you to buy the original copy, you assessed that it was worth the money you were paying, and you purchased it.

There's absolutely zero room for complaints. Especially over $15-20. If you're mad over that much money, it sounds like you don't have enough money to be buying apps. Maybe you should save up for some food if $15 hits you so hard.

Also, welcome to business. If I made a great twitter client and sold it to thousands of people, and then was approached by twitter to be hired and become the official client - how could I refuse? I'd still be getting paid by twitter, AND the client gets a huge market share, not to mention as a bonus, it's free for other people.

If you don't think it's fair, you're petty, and soon enough you'll realize that life isn't fair either.

Personally I think that those of us who bought it within the last month or two are due a refund. No doubt that the developer is making a small mint from Google.

Um... what are people COMPLAINING about here?

We got 11 apps for dirt-cheap.
Tweetie was an extreme last-minute addition to the nano-bundle, and if you bought the bundle just for Tweetie, then you're an idiot.
So assuming you're not an idiot, you bought the bundle for the 10 other amazing apps it came with.

So who is to feel guilty here?
The developer who gave us an app for free, or us for getting stuff for so cheap?
(I mean really, I can't be the only one who feels dirty for getting so many awesome programs for almost nothing.)

Remember: Tweetie for the Mac was always free.
The paid version was to support the developer and get rid of the advertisements in the app.
But you know what? The ads aren't annoying. I actually keep the ads enabled, because they don't hurt anything.

So people complaining.... just stop, you're making yourself look foolish.

Thank you Loren and Twitter and keep up the great work! smile

yes I was a little miffed to hear about this first thing in the morning but then it wasn't a large amount of cash.

All I want to know is how this is going to effect the Mac app?
Is it going to be left by it's lonesome in regards to tweet syncing?
Is development going to come to a grinding halt once the proper version is released like version 1 before it?

otherwise I'll just have to say goodbye

I'm not whining or anything, I would love to see Tweetie 2, Tweetie is great and I have fallen in love with it, but it is lacking some basic features. Anyways, Yes it looks like twitter has only acquired Tweetie 2 for the iPhone, but they also acquired the Dev, Loren, and if I remember atebits was a one person deal wasn't it? If tweetie 2 never comes, I will just have to find something else.

I personally think it's amazing that Twitter's aquired Tweetie2 for iPhone. If you look at the other apps in the App Store, such as Echofon, TweetDeck, Tweeter and the others, none of them have the sheer speed and reliability than what Tweetie had. I enjoyed my time being an iPhone owner (yes, I switched to Android this year) and being able to use Tweetie, and I'm sure "Twitter for iPhone" will be a huge hit, and a credit to be built by the number 1 Twitter client company out there.

In regards for Tweetie on Mac, I'm excited for Tweetie 2, it's such a nice app, and hopefully Tweetie 2 on Mac will be much more smoother.

Tweetie on mac does feel a little bit empty sometimes, but on the other hand the software has a nice motion interface and is very clear. Seeing tweetie becoming official is only testament to its greatness, and I hope tweetie for mac will be like tweetie 2 for iphone was - best of the best reinstated.

I think this is nothing but cool.

People who think they've been had by paying for Tweetie in a fantastic bundle are people who deserve to be confined in their narrow-world view.

Tweetie's developer got the recognition he deserved & what's more, it's going to be free henceforth, so what's the issue here? We should congratulate him for it & make the numbers of Tweeple count in the next HEIST, where other deserving apps & more companies jump onto the bandwagon by lowering the prices for the bundle. This way, charities will get the due support, we get wonderful apps & developers get paid for their effort!

ok they're buying Tweetie for iPhone. Not Tweetie for Mac. So we can expect Loren to keep developing this, even if not as much as he used to. And he's said he'll push out the beta, so all's good.
On the iPhone version, I think this is good! He can finally get lots of help from a team! He can put all those ideas of his into action! And he has a brilliant source of income now, so he should be doing good now, and I think we should all be happy for him.

Except that you need to understand that some contracts with companies restrict what you can do outside of their employment and also say that any IP developed while working for them is theirs. Also, they can tell you to not make a competing product to theirs.

The worry was, and I suspect still is for some, is that Tweetie for Mac is dead, regardless of a 2.0 beta and release.

Alright – so Loren *seems* to have come out of his hole, banged up a quick message telling us to take it easy because there's some great stuff coming.

Excuse me if I'm asking for too much - but how about making some sort of an announcement (it could be just a brief one) on the atebits blog, or even Twitter, to bring down the red alert that the whole “Twitter gets Tweetie” debacle has caused in the past 24 hours?

You truly can't blame the people who've supported this product all this time, and especially more recently, and be left feeling cheated because someone doesn't want to be at all specific.

It is depressing to see how economically illiterate people are these days.  When you buy anything.  *ANYTHING*  It may be made available *in the future* for 1) the same price, 2) a higher price, 3) a lower price.   You are free to incorporate your expectation of the price movement into your decision, but when you pay X for Y at time T you are saying, "at this *moment*, I value Y at X and I would rather have Y than X for potential future spending on some Z."  End of story.

I purchased an Apple ][ in 1978 for ~ $2,000.  I purchased a 17" MBP (refurb) last year for ~ $2,000.  Should I be crying and whining "I'll never buy another Apple product!  How dare they, in the future, create a product that is at least a billion times more powerful and functional and sell if for the same price!  They should charge at least $20,000 for it, the bastards!"

The idea prices always go up over time is false.  It only appears to happen because the USG steadily (though rapidly now) prints money and thus creates inflation.  It is *not* natural and the fact that everyone just assumes that it happens doesn't make it so. (there is plenty of evidence to the contrary, see above) 

If the USG stopped printing money (sound money) prices would actually generally decrease over time as innovation and productivity made companies able to provide better products and services at lower prices.  You can see this in competitive markets like tech.  There would, of course, be price spikes in periods of high demand and low supply, but that's *good* because it helps balance the people who most desire something with its supply.

Thanks for letting us know Loren!

Great move by Twitter and great news for Loren.
I only hope Twitter won't destroy the app with stupid decisions, like adding ads (iAds or others).
If they do that, I'll keep using Tweetie 2 until they change the API to lock us out, which'll make me buy another client.

Apart from that: People complaining that they paid money for Tweetie 1 or 2 or both (like I did) should stop whining. You got great software for little money. Cut this dev some slack. All future updates will be free, be content with that.

Ditto. This was not a bunch of people complaining about their lost pocket change originally, but about what was an apparently abandoned mac application. The press releases seemed intentionally vague by leaving out any mention of tweetie for mac so as to silently kill it, but it is possible that it was unintentional.

In any case, if Loren has to be the principal coder on the iPhone and iPad (this one should be a huge task) apps, Tweetie 2 for mac is clearly going to have to take a back seat. Now that he has responded, people at least know that Tweetie 2 is not totally abandonware, just potentially neglectware once the beta gets out to the masses.

That being said, many around here were hesitant about this promised beta from the outset due to Loren's premature promises and otherwise total lack of communication in the past. No one wants him to spend all of his time responding to criticism instead of coding (I hope), but rather to tell us what is happening instead of being so vague. Nintendo and Apple get flamed for being secretive too, but they have a long public track record in their industries. It is not so simple for a new guy to pull this off when there are promises to keep.

Don't get your hopes up, as those ads are clearly the only source of income that could make the twitter app profitable. Twitter has a long history of squandering opportunities to profit, but even so it would be most reasonable to expect ads and, eventually, iAds.

I think there is room to express disappointment or shared frustration without resorting to name calling. A little civility goes a long way.

I'd especially expect better from a Moderator.

Hey all - first of all I apologize for any confusion, things have been a bit crazy!  I just want to says I'm blasting through the todo list to get a beta put together as fast as I can, the Mac UI stuff I've been prototyping is just too cool to have anything else happen to it.  Sorry for keeping it short, gotta get back to coding!

Thanks for keeping us posted, Loren, and congrats on the acquisition! We're all looking forward to Tweetie 2 for Mac.

Or Twitter 2 for mac. Is the app free yet?

Wish Tweetie for Mac would also be FREE  and let it be Twitter's official Desktop Client.
