VP6D —> A couple of months ago Facebook updated an API used by third-party
applications   that  allowed  for  cross-posting.  The  change  breaks  this
functionality and Twitter users are no longer be able to create a Tweet  and
share it easily to their Facebook page.  “We have arranged for tweets  to be
transferred to VP6D’s Facebook page”,  the VP6D team says.  “However, due to
time zone  differences there  may be a  delay between  Twitter and  Facebook
updates.  If you follow us on Twitter (@VP6D_2018) you’ll receive our tweets
without delay”.  The “Braveheart”  is ready to sail, and  the  VP6D team  is
ready  to  soon  begin  their  journey.   Follow  the  ship’s  progress   on
https://share.garmin.com/vp6d. The function will be activated on  16 October
and will remain active until the team returns to Mangareva on 6 November.
