IFTTT should eliminate much of your recipes to Twitter
IFTT is a web service that combines the use of different systems using “recipes”, we discussed here recently . One of the things that can be done, for example, automatically send a tweet to 12 midnight of January 1 (New Year), change the picture on Twitter if Facebook changed, file certain tweets on services like Evernote, and hundreds of combinations.
However, IFTTT is being forced to remove a Twitter for much of its recipes, thanks to recent changes in policies of social network API . The service confirmed this situation through an email sent to users.
All recipes that allow use or display tweets in other services or sites will be eliminated, while shares who post messages remotely Twitter would remain (so the new year tweet could still do).
“Since September 27, we will delete all gatilladores Twitter, disabling the ability to push tweets to places such as your e-mail, Evernote or Facebook. All personal and shared recipes that use a trigger of Twitter also deleted. Recipes that use Twitter’s actions and the ability to post new tweets via IFTT still work well, “he said in a letter IFTTT CEO, Linden Tibbets.
“All in IFTTT are big fans of Twitter, and just like you, we have gained valuable recipes that use gatilladores Twitter. We are sad to leave, but we are excited to build features that work with the new Twitter policy, “he added.
The change will eliminate a number of very useful features that will surely grieve several. Twitter’s new rules have caused considerable controversy among developers, which in many cases will abandon their services now fall outside the rules (especially clients like Echofon, Twitterific, etc.).
Twitter Changes to obey a greater need for control over the service, in order to generate money from it.
