I have just started writing a Twitter App for a small company (great
timing lol). Part of it works and part of it is down. Is there any
where else I can check to see which parts of the API are down? I have
continually checked status.twitter.com, however I want to make sure
that any errors I'm seeing currently are caused by the twitter outtage
and not my own (possibly errant) code.

Basically I'm under a deadline and if I need to contact my superiors I
want to make sure that I'm right in assuming sections of the API are
truly down.
