Dear Maintainer,

The version of hotot in wheezy is currently unusable with Twitter (though the backend may work, I did not test). The problem is that it uses
Twitter's 1.0 API, which has been retired on June 11, 2013.

There are two possible solutions:

- upload a new upstream release to wheezy, though I doubt the Release Team
  would accept that;

- or remove hotot from wheezy, and upload a recent version to wheezy-backports.

The second solution should be very easy to implement: I was able to compile
hotot 1: on wheezy without any change to the source package.
