# Good bye, my friends! #

Months ago, I started a long and slow migration to fit new Android frameworks. Unfortunately, Twidere has hundreds of thousands lines of code, and over 50% needs to be rewritten because there're breaking changes. It's even impossible to maintain as publishing to Google Play requires new API target, and that target requires new libraries, and those libraries will break current code.

So It's time to say goodbye. Don't worry, I don't like Twitter's new timeline & ads as much as you do. I can't give any promise, but my plan is to start a new one, focusing on cleaness & simplicity. And before this proposed product, I want to build a web service to help you manage your Twitter data, such as removing spam followers (like [TwitBlock](

Let's looking forward to something better come to this world.

Thank you for all the work you've done!

Did you publish any news about planning to stop working on the client that I missed? For me it was working yesterday and today it suddenly doesn't. And from what I can gather it only stopped working because you removed the application from Twitter, so the API calls fail. That's all the "communication" I received about it, which is a bit unfortunate.

It would've been great to publish some news inside the app so the users know what's up.

Still, again thank you for the app!

Same problem, but it still works if you put your own API keys.

Im not using a modern version of Twidere right now as I have a new phone. I was browsing my starred repos...and saw tbis said written in Kotlin. As i plan to learn that in the future hopefully. So im quite shockd to see the new updated README. Quite a sad time.Though i remmeber many months ago on Twitter you mentioned that your job was busy soo quite understandable to not want to do a massive rewrite. :D Anyway I hope that that situation gets on better. Thanks for the MUCH better twitter usage back when I did use Twitter often. Ill try and keep an eye on your next endeavors. ありがとう、 がんばってよ! (My japanese is quite trash now lol)

This worked for me, from here:

Twitter Official Consumer Key
Twitter for Android
type: PIN
Consumer key: 3nVuSoBZnx6U4vzUxf5w
Consumer secret: Bcs59EFbbsdF6Sl9Ng71smgStWEGwXXKSjYvPVt7qys

Go to Twidere settings > Network > Advance > Default API settings

Then change Auth type to xAuth, with the Twitter for Android consumer key and secret.

After that, you need to re-login by go to Account > Add account (tap the + icon) > Choose Twitter + User settings then fill your credential (ID/Pass) and login again...
