Twitter has disappeared as a search option

In the optional search bar following the latest update Twitter no longer appears and cannot be added. Is this a bug or has Twitter been removed?

Two additions to the above:

(1) Apparently there was an agreement between Mozilla and Twitter to bundle the Twitter search engine into the product for some period of time and that has ended, so it's now only available to be added on.

(2) I couldn't find an add-on on the Add-ons site, so I created a new one and it is currently being reviewed. The code and a link to the expected future location can be found here:

I thought it must be something like an agreement ending. Sigh :{

Thanks for feedback all.
