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.
At IFTTT, first and foremost, we want to empower anyone to create connections
between literally anything. We've still got a long way to go, and to get there we need
to make sure that the types of connections that IFTTT enables are aligned with how
the original creators want their tools and services to be used.
We at IFTTT are big Twitter fans and, like yourself, we've gotten a lot of value out of
the Recipes that use Twitter Triggers. We're sad to see them go, but remain excited to
build features that work within Twitter's new policy. Thank you for your support and
for understanding these upcoming changes. If you have any questions or concerns,
please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*These Twitter policy changes specifically disallow uploading Twitter Content to a
"cloud based service" (Section 4A https://dev.twitter.com/terms/api-terms) and
include stricter enforcement of the Developer Display Requirements
Put the internet to work for you.
