So you may or may not have noticed ThinkTwit turning everything italic – either way you’ll be wanting to download this update. The long and short of it is that Twitter have changed their API and this version is 100% required if you want to keep using ThinkTwit – and no doubt every other Twitter plugin will need to be updated as well.

I’ve just updated ThinkTwit to version 1.3.7 with the following changes:
I’ve had a small number of reports lately that ThinkTwit has been deleting the index.php file from the root directory. After some investigation and attempts to fix this I’ve decided to remove the offending code temporarily until I can fix it properly. Here’s an explanation of the code:
I’m happy to report that last week I had a very nice surprise when I turned my phone on at the airport after a well deserved trip to Ibiza: I received a notification from PayPal to say that I’d had a donation for ThinkTwit. The donation was kindly given by Martijn Pantlin from Orgone Media and was very happily received!
I am today releasing a minor update to ThinkTwit, version 1.3.4, after a fortnight of beta testing by a ThinkTwit fan (thanks Jeffrey!) who has helped me locate and fix some issues with the new avatar caching:
