The boilerplate files is under DFSG-free license. And if the github
repository is closed, we can host git repository on other location.

Twitter is only a example. There are several pacakges which depend on
private company services. If you think it is a problem, you should
also claim to remove several packages which depend on Google API.

Whether upstream author agree or not, I can ship the package with
snapshot files. Because these are free. But I don't think it is
needed unless there is a cleary policy-violation.
