IFTTT – short for If This Then That – is a Web-based service that enables you to automate actions across your different social networks and services. It’s also the latest victim of Twitter’s changing terms of service.
In an e-mail sent to users, IFTTT’s CEO Linden Tibbets said that the service will be removing all Twitter “Triggers” on September 27, 2012 – a direct result of recently-published changes to how Twitter is allowing third-party developers to work with their service.
This means that IFTTT will no longer repost Twitter content to services like Facebook, or who archive their tweets to the popular note-taking software and service Evernote. Tibbets said that IFTTT will continue to support actions that post directly to Twitter, however.
“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.”
