Thanks for the reports. We are aware of the elevated 50xs and are
working hard to bring it back down to normal. I don't have a specific
timeline that I can give at this point, but we'll update you regularly
if this continues.

I've update @twitterapi with the latest status as well:

As for the follow up regarding this weekends issue, we are still
committed to giving that report, but we haven't gotten all the details
yet. We will update the list when we can produce a full issue report.

Thanks, Ryan
