Simon 5 is coming soon!

Simon version 5 is currently in beta testing. It is a massive update, introducing a much-requested feature: syncing the Simon data between multiple Macs, plus a Simon Status service, a Link Checker filter, improved Find filter, iMessage and Speak Error notifiers, a new app icon, and much more.

Important: please note that Simon 5 requires a minimum of macOS 10.12 (Sierra), and will be a paid upgrade from Simon 4 after the beta. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

Twitter Service

Since Twitter have dropped RSS support, I wondered if Simon would work to monitor Twitter feeds. I downloaded the demo version, but when I tried to set up the Twitter service using the “Another’s Updates” source, I get an error:

Error: An unknown error has occurred (code 410).

Do you know if there is a problem with the Twitter API changes, or is there something I’m missing?
