More Twitter problems

Fail Whale HiccupsImage by Zoolcar9 via FlickrNot looking good over on Twitter at the moment judging by the current status of the site. They are in the process of recovering from a following/follower problem that occurred earlier, the issue being that our profiles are displaying inaccurate counts/time lines. The message goes on to state that even after the recovery is complete that the count may appear lower. I don't have a huge follower/following but some are rioting over this, dragging people behind cars and setting fire to effigies of the Fail Whale...

Maybe it's not as extreme as that, if it is it's not reaching the usual news sources anyway. Another problem that doesn't appear to be widespread is 'ghost tweets' blogger Louis Gray had a Tweet he didn't write hit the service. Lets hope they can get this resolved as more people are losing patience and with alternative micro blogging sites they may wash their hands of Twitter completely soon!
