Update: Drew Olanoff has the note from IFTTT CEO Linden Tibbets:
In recent weeks, Twitter announced policy changes that will affect how applications and users like yourself can interact with Twitter’s data. As a result of these changes, on September 27th we will be removing all Twitter Triggers, disabling your ability to push tweets to places like email, Evernote and Facebook. All Personal and Shared Recipes using a Twitter Trigger will also be removed. Recipes using Twitter Actions and your ability to post new tweets via IFTTT will continue to work just fine.
In other words, anything syndicating tweets out elsewhere will stop, but recipes for posting new tweets will still work. So it’s half bullshit, but still bullshit.
in but not out is exactly the definition of all bullshit.
Bullshit. I am getting so tired of reading these stories. My tweets are mine and I want to save them to MY archive. It’s really difficult for me to imagine not using Twitter, but this kind of thing is really making me consider it. I wish they would stop being such dicks.
These companies are making choices about what’s best for themselves. Like I’ve said, don’t be Twitter’s bitch, don’t be Google’s bitch, don’t be Facebook’s bitch, be your own bitch.
This is a preliminary result of the network of retweets with the hashtag #jan25 at February 11 2011, at the time of the announcement of Mubarak’s resignation. If you retweeted someone, or has been retweeted, it is possible that your username is one of these tinny points (or maybe a bigger one?).
