Twitter is Broke, Again
I'm sure by the time I take this screen shot and post this post, Twitter will be back up. Then again, I also thought that Twitter would have restored my account their server ate, but now 3 weeks later, they haven't been able to yet. In fact, they had drop-shipped me a mens small Twitter t-shirt (emblazoned with "wearing my twitter t-shirt," cleverly enough) even before I had a personal acknowledgment that yes, my account had been eaten during a database update. (Through several e-mails from Twitter and other deleted users, and through much time spent on the Twitter forums and GetSatisfaction, the story is that this is happening to lots of people--it's still happening in fact, and no one has had a successful un-delete of their account yet. I do think Twitter is trying, they just haven't succeeded yet.)
My old account is still no more, and while I've set-up a new one, I have yet to re-find all my friends (including private accounts, like the wonderful SwissMiss!). I know it's a free service, but honestly, between my iPhone and times like the screen shot above, I'm experiencing less and less service.
C'mon, guys, pull through this! Twitter is a lot of fun, most especially when it works...
