Twitter @ Replies, Neither Here Nor There

Yesterday was a very interesting day for Twitter. In short, Twitter removed the ability to see @ replies. Then they brought it back but in a limited fashion. The Twitter blog explained:

We're making a change such that any updates beginning with @username (that are not explicitly created by clicking on the reply icon) will be seen by everyone following that account.

Read that a few times. Neither here nor there.

Well, you might be able to see people who @ reply you or maybe not, it depends. That is why you might want to conduct a Twitter Search for your name and subscribe to the results via RSS. I do for both @seroundtable and @rustybrick (feel free to follow both).

To catch up on the Twitter action over the past 24 hours, TechCrunch posted a quality summary of what took place.

Forum discussion at WebmasterWorld and make sure to follow @seroundtable and @rustybrick on Twitter.

I find that Twitter has outages, funny things happen with the site and sometime even messages don't appear then reappear. They are working it out.

Twitter seems to have alot of problems. I started using them but their servers are slow and trying to use it can become frustrating.
