Thunderclap, a third-party Twitter app enabling large groups of users to simultaneously tweet the same message, has been shut down by Twitter after just two days of operation. The tweet-amplifier managed to get just two Thunderclaps sent out before being shut down. Sources at Thunderclap have revealed to Betabeat that Twitter nixed the service, alleging that it violated Twitter's terms of service.
