Hey there,

This has just been deployed. The old "status" endpoints are
now seamlessly redirected (HTTP 301) to the share intent. Please note that
we still encourage you to replace these old URLs (i.e.
http://twitter.com/?status=hello and http://twitter.com/home/?status=hello)
for the Share Intent (i.e. http://twitter.com/intent/tweet?text=hello)
