It’s Twitpocalypse Now: Twitter Clients Not Working
OK — it has arrived, the supposedly Twitpocalypse is taking place now and some Twitter clients have been taken down with it. (though not as large-scale as expected) Some examples include the Twitterrific for iPhone [details here] which I am currently using as well as TweetDeck and Destroy Twitter. The Twitpocalypse website has also updated and is now showing that the unique identifier associated to each tweet has now exceeded 2,147,483,647 which means some Twitter clients will start to crash or malfunction. Other than that, the Twitter website seems to be working fine. We will be keeping more updates on this.
