Jonathan,

It's only /home?status= that does not currently work, /?status= does still work. As a quick workaround you could simply use /?status=. Of course, I'd strongly recommend making the switch to web intents asap.

I'm totally with you guys on the value of switching to web intents,
and we recommend all our customers doing new implementations use them.
However, there are just too many legacy implementations against the
"old hack", as Taylor deemed it, for you to expect everyone to switch
over in such a timeframe. For a very long time the /?status= method
was the only way to tweet from a website and web intents are only a
few months old, so I hope you guys don't diminish the priority of
fixing this bug just because you want to force everyone to the new way
of doing things.

Hi Omar,

Sorry for the confusion -- we recommend Web Intents as we've developed the
Tweet Intent specifically for this purpose -- let us know what tweaks you
think the display needs to "look good" in a full browser tab. Intents are
optimized to load quickly and service the user's intent as efficiently as
possible -- the old way requires a more significant load time and invites
the user to engage in all kinds of other fun Twitter activity aside from
tweeting -- maybe they'll even forget why you sent them there in the first
place.

This is a bug and while I don't have an ETA on when it will be fixed, it was
not intentional and this old hack has not been deprecated.

Hey There,
+1. This issue is affecting all of our products at the moment. I can't
find any notification anywhere about this being deprecated today.
Please restore this functionality. And allow us some time to migrate
w/ a date in mind. If it's no longer going to be supported, we need to
know sooner as we have clients waiting for an answer at the moment. We
would like to use intents, but we need a full page to send the user to
since we can't always open a popup window (ie from Flash.) and that
page doesn't look good in a full browser tab.
Thanks,
Omar

Hey Yahel,
Meet Web Intents:http://dev.twitter.com/pages/intents(takea look on the
"intent/tweet" intent). It really is super easy to implement. For
example:http://twitter.com/intent/tweet?text=foobar

Hey,
We've just noticed that auto-populating tweets using
http://twitter.com/home/?status=foobarnolonger works.
Has this feature been totally removed, or is this a temporary glitch?
(Perversely,http://twitter.com/?status=foobarworks, but that was the
older method that broke last year and we were told to add /home to fix
it.)
I know we're supposed to move to the official Tweet button, but we have
a
very large scale CRM that still relies on the old method.
Please let me know ASAP, as we have a lot of broken tweet links in the
wild.
Thanks,
Yahel
