Ahmen Paul, glad I'm not the only one that shares you sentiments. I
had previously emailed Ryan something similar. What surprises me is
how little they care to share with the developers who made thier
service what it is.
I also can't fathom how many other developers have yet to tell Twitter
this and act like this is new. This DDoS has gone on for 2 days and
counting and 29 hours for them to say something ro us developers is

I think we all appreciate the pressure you are under and the flak
that you are taking for events outside your control, and we all wish
we could help more.
But for an open communications company that is postioning itself as
the future platform for messaging - there has been so little
communication and feedback to the developers in your community that
it is simply shocking.
Little things such as statements that we as developers can use to
pass to our users with regards to issues currently affecting the
service would help immensly. I have spent my Friday night
responding to over 150 emails asking why twollo is down - all I can
say is I think it is related to current events and Twitter aren't
telling us anything. This doesn't inspire confidence in users of my
service and of twitters'
The situation is reminisent to the oauth situation the other month.
Next to no communication at all.
We all love your service and want to build on top of it and help it
grow and our own services too.
From my own, probably selfish point of view the app engine is
completly blocked at the moment and as far as I can tell we have no
indication if it is up yet - I can't tell correctly as I am in bed

This is a known issue and we are working as hard as we can on
resolving it. We thank you for your patience as we are dealing with
everything going on with the DDoS.
