Today Windows Live Team confirms that 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 from June 30th 2010.
Microsoft understands that Twitter is one of the popular social media service now-a-days and its connectivity is essential to any social network, so they are trying to resolve policy issue and hopefully get it back soon to Windows Live.
Windows Live Team sent a email to all Windows Live users about upcoming change.
Here’s an excerpt from the email.
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.
