When I saw the headline I was worried that the implementation of the
At-Large Social media strategy would be derailed, but according to
IFTTT's email:

"...we will be removing all Twitter Triggers, disabling your ability
to push tweets to places like email, Evernote and Facebook. All
Personal and Shared Recipes using a Twitter Trigger will also be
Recipes using Twitter Actions and your ability to post new tweets via
IFTTT will continue to work just fine."

So using IFTTT actions to post to Twitter will be ok.

A primer of what IFTTT does - https://ifttt.com/wtf

Just to summarize the implementation strategy for the At-Large Social
Media Strategy :

- Use Confluence blog posts (similar to creating a wiki page) from the
At-Large wiki. Blog Posts would be done by staff and/or the ALAC chair
when testing is complete.
- Use IFTTT to monitor the RSS feed of the Confluence blog posts and
create a Tweet and Facebook link post which links back to the
Confluence blog post

Here's a link to one of the recipes : https://ifttt.com/recipes/58070
. I'll probably remove this link in a few days as the location for the
Confluence blog posts will be changing
