We have updated My Opera with Twitter's desired authentication method (for security reason) which means that you have to reconnect with Twitter to get it working again. It takes only a second and it's even easier if you're already logged in to Twitter (in your browser).
You can connect My Opera with Twitter from "My page" » "Social Networks". There you'll find instructions how to connect with Twitter.
Please let us know if you have any questions or comments about this update as a comment below. You can also get more details in the My Opera devblog.

The Opera icon and logo was updated more than a year ago. Many sites have already updated the icon, but if you do a google image search, the old icon is scattered all over the intertubes. The task of getting all websites to update the icon seems hopeless, but maybe you can help out?
Help us out - win Opera swag!
To get started, simply identify a website using the old icon and ask them to update. The easiest way to get started is to do an image search on Google after "opera logo", "opera browser", "opera icon" and so forth.
By using the our new icon (or logo), websites will make their page look more attractive and it helps preventing new sites from discovering our old one. When you get someone to update, please let us know as a comment in this post. Those of you who help us out the most will be rewarded with an Opera goodie bag.
The new icon and logo can be found in the resources pages. Thanks for helping out making the Web a more beautiful place.

The Bounce it like it's hot competition is over, and here are the winners!
Shortly after the competition started, several users found a way to abuse their score. As a result winners are not only selected based on score, but also through creativity and dedication.
The Tactician award goes to GrKimi for exploiting his Pentium 3 CPU and trapping the ball in a corner.
The Hacker award goes to Uriel for explaining the cheat.
The Marathon award goes to Syed for trying all night without cheats.
Congratulations to all our winners!

- When you think you got an awesomely staggering highscore, snap a screenshot of it and upload it to your My Opera blog or photo album.
- Post a link to your image high score as a comment in this post.
- Contest ends Friday July 9!
The best "football bouncers" will receive some sweet Opera swag.
