On the fall of UberTwitter, a popular phone application, SocialScope, the multi social network client for BlackBerry and other mobile phone devices, is quickly gaining mileage.
Taking advantage of the suspension of UberTwitter, SocialScope, which has so far been in a private beta stage, has begun sending out invites to everyone who signs up.
UberTwitter, which enabled Twitter users post 140-character messages, has been suspended over multiple violations of Twitter's terms of service.
We have suspended UberTwitter and twidroyd for violating our policies, Twitter said on its Help Centre page.
We are taking the unusual step of sharing this with you because today's suspension may affect a larger number of users, Twitter added.
To help users continue to use Twitter during the disruption of these applications, the microblogging site recommended applications such as Twitter for Blackberry, Twitter for Android, Twitter for iPhone and other official Twitter apps.
Now, with an intention of cashing in on the tweeps who want more than what the official Twitter apps provide, SocialScope has made itself easily available.
Users can get SocialScope by just signing up. Following the sign up, the users will receive an invite code along with the steps on how to install the app through an email.
SocialScope supports Blackberrys, iPhones, Androids, Palms, Windows Mobiles among other devices.
Meanwhile, reactions to the fall of UberTwitter and the consequent rise of SocialScope poured in on Twitter.
MargarethEllen tweeted, I hate so much that ubertwitter is now no longer exist ;( still learning to love this socialscope thing.

Not everyone is ready to accept the newcomer yet. While some complained of spell check issues on SocialScope, some outright rejected the new app. One user posted, Just tried #socialscope and made me miss #UberTwitter more.
