Update: Twitter is back, albeit balky!
Here is what Bit.ly spit back at me when I went to pitch my last blog post (the one before this one):
Even though Twitter is back online, I still can't launch stories there from Bit.ly. What a headache. Ugggh. Back to Snurl, which worked.
For someone who uses Twitter to pitch stories (and, yes, provide silly, waste-of-time updates), this left a bitter taste in my mouth. It affected my marketing in addition to my ability to engage in silly, one-sentence banter with fellow Twitterers.
But I lived. My productivity might have even been enhanced by this outage. If it were Google under DOS, I'd be in trouble. I'm searching there constantly for work research.
