Important service change regarding Twitter with Widows Live‏

Social Networking has become not only a popular way for friends to communicate. It is also a great means of sharing information. I have found that I generally get technical news and information faster via Twitter than my large collection of RSS feeds.

For Windows Live users who have not seen the announcement, effective June 30, 2010, twitter posts will no longer be imported from Twitter and shared with your Windows Live Messenger friends. Following is the e-mail notice from the Windows Live Team Newsletter:

"Dear Windows Live Customer,

Thank you for connecting your social networks and other services with Windows Live. We are contacting you because you have added your Twitter feed to Windows Live and we want to notify you of an upcoming change.

Beginning June 30, 2010 your tweets will no longer be automatically imported from Twitter and shared out to your Windows Live Messenger friends due to policy changes made by Twitter. We are working hard with Twitter to make this service available again and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

We remain focused on making Hotmail, Messenger, and your PC with Windows great companions to social networks and other services. This change has no impact on your ability to connect Windows Live with our other 75+ other social networks and other service partners, which include Facebook, LinkedIn, MySpace, Flickr, and more.


The Windows Live Team"
