Craig Grannell sums up the seemingly controversial issue regarding Tweetbot not being a free update:
Everyone has reason to be disgusted. It’s a well known fact that iOS developers don’t have expenses and in fact survive solely on a diet of unicorns and Jony Ive’s tears, living in houses powered by rainbows. And if you’ve owned the old version of Tweetbot since its original release in August 2011, it will have so far cost you a penny a week, which is enough to stretch the budget of any typical consumer.
linkbait article perfectly illustrates the gross overreaction to Tapbots’ pricing of Tweetbot 3, making a point to emphasise that the new app comes “at a price”.
