Twitter changes cause IFTTT to pull Twitter support

Dear abraham,

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.

So, wait, I can still publish links to other stuff I do onto Twitter, but I cannot pull my tweetstream from Twitter to anywhere else?

Apparently Twitter just wants to be used as a shoutcast service, because that's where this is going to go.
 
I am way late on this news. Figured it out today because my recipe stopped working after Jan. 22. EFF U Twitter.  ;-)
