More than a few Twitter power users were upset when Falcon Pro, the popular Android Twitter client, hit its 100,000 user token limit and became nigh useless for new or returning users. Developer Joaquim Vergès has resorted to an unconventional approach to get the word out about Twitter's draconian API policies: he's raised the price of the formerly $1 app to an eye-popping $132.13 (€100), ostensibly to discourage people from actually downloading it. Those who formerly purchased it can re-download it via Google Play's standard method, though logging in may be impossible.
He posted the following message in the app description by way of explanation:
** ATTENTION PLEASE READ THIS **
** TOKEN LIMIT REACHED - DO NOT BUY - WORKS ONLY FOR ONLY FOR EXISTING USERS **
** THE APP WILL NOT ACCEPT NEW USERS BECAUSE OF TWITTER LIMITATIONS (100k tokens max) **

And Please RELEASE your access token from the Twitter settings on the web if you're not using the app anymore.
