News for half-year ending 2014-07-12 (open thread)

Hello, folks!

The Twitter Digest plugin I had been using for this weekly roundup broke back in January. I have spent hours trying to get it going again and trying to find an alternative, but I couldn’t and I didn’t. This is a bummer, because it was easy content and I know people enjoyed the threads.

This will teach me about switching to the latest version of WordPress just because WordPress insists that I should.

I’ll keep my fingers crossed that the developer of Twitter Digest eventually releases a new version or that someone develops an alternative. In the meantime, I will try to do this manually.

Here is some stuff that would have appeared in the news roundup had the feature been working for the past six months.
