Twitter's T-Mobile Problem

For most of this week, I’ve been getting this message when I try to send a message from my phone to twitter:

Service is temporarily down. Please, try again later.

At first, I thought the problem was Twitter and I contacted the company. They told me the problem was with T-Mobile. The story hit the blogs this weekend and has been on techmeme today.

Twitter has a short post up on their blog explaining that they are working on it.

I sure hope they get it fixed soon because I send most of my twitter updates via my phone which explains why I’ve been a bit quiet this week on twitter.

    Fred, Tiny Twitter will work for you while this gets all sorted out… I’ve been using it on my T-Mobile Blackberry w/o any problems. Just go to from your device’s browser and you’ll be off and running in under a minute!There are a few other mobile clients that should work too (twitterberry, twitlet, cellity, and a few others). But I am partial to Tiny Twitter since I built her ;)Enjoy – TT’s been a fun side project for me and something I use daily.

      That’s all well and good if you’re signed up for mobile internet, but I always loved that with Twitter it was as simple as sending an SMS.I tweeted about this when I heard about it Monday (…, and didn’t get any responses. I guess it’s not just a rumor.
