Twitter’s New Policy

September 21, 2012

I use IFTTT (https://ifttt.com/wtf) a lot to automate my online chores. This morning I received an announcement that Twitter (http://twitter.com) has made new policy changes that affects how applications and users can interact with Twitter’s data. I’m not delving into the details of the policy changes nor the effect it has on IFTTT as both of which are briefly explained in the newsletter below:

Dear Hadramie,

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 support@ifttt.com.

*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 (https://dev.twitter.com/terms/display-requirements).

I don’t know how much Twitter’s new policy will affect my social media activities. I certainly hope nothing is greatly affected so that the transition will be smooth. If ever there was any disparity between Twitter and IFTTT, I believe the latter will make due changes effortlessly.
