Update on latency (fixed)
Monday and Tuesday of this week we have had connection problems to twitter.com between 0730 and 1400 PDT. Some users were seeing timeouts in their browsers on a regular basis through these periods.

We are working with these ISPs to resolve the problem. In the meantime, if 1) your email account is with AT&T, SBC or BellSouth and 2) you...
