Effective immediately, we are dropping Twitter from our notifications systems leaving SMS and email as the notification options for new trades. This decision was made for two reasons:
- Twitter has recently flagged our account as violating it’s terms of service and we cannot appeal the decision. Although there is no specific reason provided by Twitter, we believe this is due to the generic nature of our Tweets. We only use the platform for notifying new trades and not for discourse.
- The software solution we were using for connectivity to Twitter has been compromised. A recent security vulnerability was found in the SDK used by the software which provides this connectivity. The plugin author has not offered a fix and we do not want our website to vulnerable to the exploit in the interim.
For the foreseeable future, we will rely on SMS and Email based notifications for alerts. We will keep you updated if anything changes.
