Twitter no longer fully supports IE8

Twitter has dropped IE8 support, meaning that Twitter widgets in your site won't work when viewed in IE8.  Ben from Twitter Inc, says "the make-up of the web has changed and is now made up of a much more diverse array of physical devices. Thus we are also strongly considering dropping support for Internet Explorer 8 much sooner..."

What does this mean for you?  Basically, any Twitter widgets (Tweet buttons etc) will not work when your site is viewed in Internet Explorer 8.
