New Delhi: Twitter is making a number of changes to its service. It has launched new apps for Android and iPhone, enhanced search, improved notifications, introduced expanded tweets and also got a new logo.
Amidst this flurry of additions and improvements one long running Twitter feature has suddenly gone missing - the embeddable widgets. Twitter is now redirecting users from its widgets pages to its logo and brand page.
While the existing widgets embedded by users on their blogs and websites are still functional, Twitter isn't currently allowing creation of new widgets. Twitter allowed users to create widgets for profiles, search, lists and favourites.
Amidst a flurry of additions and improvements a couple of long running Twitter features have suddenly gone missing.
Even the page for the much used Twitter buttons has also been redirected. The widgets and the buttons pages were accessible till Tuesday.
Has Twitter shut down its embeddable widgets or is it only in the process of giving it a makeover, quite like much else on the site? Seems unlikely, more so for the very popular Twitter buttons that have become ubiquitous across the Web.
