It hasn’t been possible to upload videos for a few days, due to more strict API requirements from YouTube. That’s been fixed, so now it works fine again.
We’ve published the videos received during that time, so no videos should be lost.
We’ve added filtering of received e-mails, so that texts like “This is a message from bla bla bla” in most cases won’t show up. We’ve most likely not covered all cases, so further filtering will be done if we see a need for it.
We also now remove the mail body if the subject and mail body are identical.
We won’t filter out swear words and things like that. At least not for now.
Twitizer received this subtle message yesterday: “Twitizer sucks! Don't bother with this piece of Sh**.”
This was clearly due to the fact that Twitizer had truncated a too long subject line in a previous message. So, now we’ve changed so that the subject line can be any length on the Timeline and landing pages. This has been applied retroactively.
As things are easy to modify (usually): Let us know if you think things should work differently. We can probably fix it in a day’s time, so please use Feedback. That’s why it’s there.
Long time no see.
Due to a mishap today, where one user on several accounts uploaded a series of Word and PowerPoint files, we found it necessary to shut off the possibility to upload any type of file to Twitizer. Now it’s only possible to upload files that Twitizer can display.
The point with Twitizer is to multimedia enable Twitter, not to serve as a generic file upload site, so this is in a way a statement to clarify that point. Neither will you users risk getting viruses on your computers. At least not via Twitizer.
