Want The Lights to Blink When You're Mentioned on #Twitter? Now You Can (And More) With #IFTTT

IFTTT (which is short for “IF This Then That”, and is pronounced like “Gift”, without the “G”) is a super-useful web-based service that lets users aggregate content from a number of different web applications to create simple conditional statements known as “Recipes”.

Continue Sharing Instagram Pics On Twitter With This IFTTT Recipe

After sharing a few ways to post Instagram photos to Twitter after they disconnect, one commenter, Eric Schatz, asked if there was a reason why an IFTT trigger wouldn’t work.

We didn’t know if IFTTT was cutting off access to Twitter entirely (a la Instagram) since the company sent its users an email explaining that they would no longer be able to tap into the Twitter API, so all recipes that included Twitter would stop functioning after September 27th.
