And this has relevance to this mailing list because...

Maybe if you'd gone to the effort to identify every package on SBo that has any relation to twitter it would maybe be relevant.  Here let me do that for you:


I have no idea if the above packages are related to twitter; they are the search results on searching for "twitter".  I have no idea if they are impacted by the alleged new twitter policy.  Any such policy should preferably be referenced from twitter's own website instead of a 3rd party (e.g. techcrunch.com).
