Yes, you say something nice about a service, lots of other people start talking about it, and they start having problems. As useful as I think Twitter can be, currently the Gtalk IM function is completely unreliable, which means using my blackberry to send updates and get notifications doesn’t really work. I have to be logged in to the website to see or post updates, and the website is obviously suffering through some growing pains and has a tendency to be very slow every once in awhile.
As cool as your service might be, if it doesn’t work consistently I’m eventually going to quit using it. C’mon Twitter, get your act together.
