from TUAW: We saw this hit the fan early today, hot on the tail of the AMBER Alert post. Apparently the 1.3 update to Tweetie, a popular Twitter client for iPhone we've covered before, has been denied release in the App Store because the app could potentially show "offensive language." As you may know, blatantly offensive apps (like really "adult" content) are verboten on Apple's store. Unfortunately, that rule was probably intended to keep X-rated content (maybe hard R as well) off the store, not inadvertently prevent an update to a popular Twitter client. In this case, the offensive material could pop up in Twitter trend searches -- never mind that you can find much worse using Google's search app or mobile Safari itself. wtf is going on at apple? this is really getting to be disgusting. are they trying to make me buy the pre when my contract ends in july? i'm getting really tired of this nonsense from apple and this is a mac fan speaking. no flash, stupid app rejection process and no background processes. i'm a half step away from getting the pre. developers have not even got their renewal applications for the app store. apple had better get their act together because i'm a half step away from switching to palm. btw the reason it was rejected was in the twitter trend #****ItList was one of the top trends.
