As spotted by Matt Buchanan, the site just abruptly removed Twitter from its "Find people you know" section, which previously scanned your Facebook, Gmail, and Twitter friends/contacts, matching them with users on the Tumblr microblogging platform. Now only the former two services remain. Instagram was forced to take similar action last month, axing Twitter from its own friend-finding capabilities after the massively popular photo app was blocked from utilizing the necessary APIs.
