Twitter news tracker depreciated

Our Twitter news tracker was mainly based on an automatic classification of Reuters news entries. We curated the automatically posted tweets regularly by removing false positives and added a few references from time to time manually.

The automatic classification and curation was based on some older Python scripts (tweetpy, nltk, scikit-learn, flask) that stopped working today. The code would need a substantial rewrite and curating the automatic posts did also take some time regularly. Therefore, we depreciate the ParlGov Twitter news tracker.

We may reestablish the news tracker in a future version of the project.
