Twitter removes “via”

TheNextWeb reports Twitter no longer displays what client a tweet was posted with on web.

Twitter has removed the ability for users to determine exactly what client was used to post a message to its service from the web client. This was previously removed from its official iPhone client and that change has been removed from the web version as well.

Twitter is likely attempting to reduce the exposure of third party applications. Applications such as gladlyCast and Seesmic are affected.
