“The Next Web has been supplied with a request for information sent to developer Tapbots by House Energy & Commerce Committee Chairman Henry Waxman and Chairman Fred Upton,” Panzarino reports. “This letter was also sent to 33 other iOS developers in addition to Tweetbot including Twitter, Foodspotting, Turntable.fm,, Trover, Instagram’s Burbn, Path, Facebook, SoundCloud and more.”
