Is the Twitter app (telepop agent) missing in Genie?

My old HD DVR had a Twitter app that allowed me to receive new tweets as popup messages on my TV.  On my new Genie receiver, I cannot find the Twitter app.  There is a Social Twitter app, but all that seems to do is allow you to post messages about the television program you are watching which I don't care about.  (why would someone care  about what I am watching)  I want to see new Twitter messages from news groups I am following popup automatically on my TV.  This worked great on my old HD DVR.  Did DirecTV exclude the old Twitter app on the Genie receiver?  I hope that's not the case.  Please help or comment if you are able to view Twitter messages with a Genie.

Those apps were removed when DirecTV upgraded the old app system to the new HD apps

Well that was dumb.  They should have upgraded the old apps to HD apps and had the same apps in the Genie.  Thank you for responding.
