Goodbye to the free Twitter API
« on: February 02, 2023, 11:51:24 AM »
I've been using this since forever ago for TweetWX.
Looks like it's time has come to an end with no more free use of the Twitter API.

Sigh.. If they cut off the free API, I'll stop posting conditions/forecasts with TweetWX to my site (and deprecate the script set).

Wanted to bump this


Got this from IFTTT

Quote
We wanted to let you know about a potential impact to your Twitter Applets.

Starting Monday, February 13th, 2023, Twitter will no longer support free access to their API. As a result, we expect that any Applet that connects with Twitter will stop working. You can learn more about Twitter's upcoming API change here.

We're notifying you because you're using an Applet that leverages the Twitter integration. To see which of your Applets may be affected, you can refer to your My Applets page.

We know this might be disruptive and we're working with Twitter to find the best solution. We will continue to inform you of any progress on the matter.

Thanks,
- IFTTT team

Well, thats just poop :( there goes my long standing WD to twitter feed and IFTTT twitter to FB feed.

I do pay for IFTTT so i wonder if this is why I've not had the email yet? even so, without the WD feed, the IFTTT will be dead anyway :(

On Monday 2/13,
@HennepinWxAlert's automated weather alert system may stop working, as a result of changes made by
@Twitter
. I'm planning to send automated test messages periodically over the next few days to keep tabs on what's working and what's not!

This change will likely lead to the closure of @HennepinWxAlert. I will let you know as soon as I know more. ☹️ twitter.com/TwitterDev/staÖ

They havenít shut off my conditions/forecast tweets using TweetWX script (yet). Been doing those automated tweets since 2009.  Iíll keep watching.
