Favstar — a start-up which has been analysing and curating tweets based on their popularity — has announced that it will shut down its operations on June 19, citing Twitter’s decision to change the way it shares data with third-party companies.

Favstar started in May 2009. At its peak, it was serving over 50 million visits a month.

"We are excited to announce that we are working with Google Cloud to move cold data storage and our flexible compute Hadoop clusters to Google Cloud Platform," Parag Agrawal, Chief Technology Officer at Twitter, said in a blog post on Thursday.

“During December 2017, Twitter stated that on June 19 2018, they will be shutting down the method that Favstar and other third-party Twitter apps use to receive your Tweets, Likes and Retweets,” Favstar CEO Tim Haines wrote in a post on Monday.

“Twitter wrote that they’ll be replacing this with another method of data access, but have not been forthcoming with the details or pricing. Favstar can’t continue to operate in this environment of uncertainty,” he added.

"World Cup 2018 is the most global event in the history of our content partnerships business," Jay Bavishi, Twitter's Senior Partnerships Manager for Global Content, was quoted as saying.

Favstar was a huge hit with people new to Twitter, up-and-coming comedians, tech folk, reporters, celebrities, and people looking for a quick route to the best tweets.
