The Tor Project has indicated that they have reached out to Twitter to discuss the renewal of the website's certificate.

Twitter has discontinued its Tor-specific onion site after allowing its certificate to expire. Attempting to access the site now prompts a warning that the certificate has lapsed and proceeding further is not recommended. The certificate expired just two days before the site's one-year launch anniversary. Twitter's lack of a communications department has made it difficult to get a statement regarding the change, but the Tor Project confirmed the service's lapse.

The organization has reached out to Twitter to explore bringing the onion version of the social media platform back online. While Twitter can still be accessed via a browser running Tor, users will not have the additional benefits offered by the Tor-specific onion site. Onion sites, also known as "hidden services" or "dark web" sites, offer an extra layer of security and protection from censorship efforts. Despite the Tor Project's attempts to resurrect the service, its future looks uncertain due to Twitter's layoffs and instability issues.
