My station's tweets to Twitter have stopped completely

I realise that there has been a problem with sending tweets from within the Cumulus program for some time (due I believe to some changes enforced by Twitter), but nevertheless it still managed to send a few each day.

However, I have just looked back and can see that no tweets have been sent since 29th July. Is anyone here still using the Twitter option in Cumulus? If so, what's the situation with you ? Do you know why no tweets are being sent and is the situation likely to be permanent?

I looked into this a couple of weeks ago, and the only change on the Twitter side is that they require tweets to be submitted using TLS version 1.2 and above from that date. I don't know whether or not Cumulus uses TLS 1.2 - I am assuming not - but as I know the Cumulus Twitter functionality is basically broken (in that it doesn't use a per-user API key, so will be severely rate-limited) I didn't look any further into it.

Just noticed that my Cumulus Tweets are also not being sent, but every-hour tweet through Weathercloud is working http://www.twitter.com/KomokaWeather

Enjoy,
Paul

I'd use a third party app for sending tweets from Cumulus (like twurl maybe), twitter is broken and cannot be fixed in Cumulus 1.

It's broken in MX too, but may be fixed there at some point.

It's broken in Cumulus 1.9.4 (Build 1099) as well...

After 136,600 Tweets, it was a good ride...

That is what Mark said "twitter is broken and cannot be fixed in Cumulus 1."!!
