Twitter having problems with updates this weekend

Filed as News on April 20, 2008 8:59 am

If you’ve not noticed, twitter appears to be having some problems with updates this weekend.

Last night I thought maybe folks were just out having a good time on a Saturday night, but I started noticing that if you clicked through to their profiles or looked on FriendFeed that they had twitter updates – yet those updates weren’t showing in my twitter stream.

Frustrating, for sure.

Twitter appears to continue to have growing pains – hopefully they’re able to continue to scale as needed to keep up with their growth of a highly popular service.

Both Paris Lemon and Matthew Ingram have also noticed this issue over the last day or so.

    Oh how sad that you noticed. And then investigated. This is a time I’m glad I’m not you. :(
