Twitter Contacts Broken?

Twitter Contacts Broken?

From:

Approximately 2 weeks ago my Twitter contacts on Friendica stopped 
receiving updates.  If I attempt to visit the RSS feed on Twitter for a 
contact, I get a message saying that the API version has been 
discontinued.  I don't have the Twitter connector installed, as so far 
it hasn't been necessary for receiving messages from Twitter contacts.

Has anyone else has this problem?  Any suggestions for a fix?

Thanks.

i cant get friendica installed at all, neither via the vdi image or
realtime on squeeze. wheezy i dont have access to the installer yet(BDROM
ISO) but I imagine its the same. Does it work via IIS on windows?

Yes, Twitter killed the RSS feeds when they switched off the old API
version.

There is a thread in the support group at [1] with a solution, but that
solution has the drawback of getting ads inserted into the stream.
