    Twitter is not down. Ubertwitter is.

    There is this thing called a computer and you can log in and check Twitter there too.

    To be more precise, the Twitter API is still having trouble. The API is what UT, SS, TB, and many of the other phone apps use to communicate with Twitter servers. None of the phone apps are down per se. The API that allows them to communicate with Twitter is still up and down.

    I would assume that this is because Twitter is throttling the API to limit the connections. Yesterday's outage was due to a DOS atttack, which is the result of a flood of simultaneous request to the server from outside. By throttling the API, Twitter can be sure that they won't get hit again...at least via the API. They are probably just making sure that all is well before they open the pipes again.

    They will do so in time. Until then, access to Twitter via third party apps will likely be sporadic.

    You're right. Twitter is currently blocking all requests from the blackberry internet infrastructure. They'll be back soon.

    It was back for me yesterday evening for about 10 minutes then poof gone again. I had switched to Direct TCP in order for it to work. Now all I get is errors. I wish they would hurry up and open up for the blackberry community.

    Not yet. Mine's refreshed all of 2 times today. The second time I went to post, it froze up, and has never reconnected since (that was about 11:30am). Not out of the woods yet.....

    Mine has been populating fine all day. It hangs every time I try to send a tweet, but the odd thing is the tweet actually goes through. Ubertwitter acts as if it's frozen and died, but it's actually successful. I just have no indication it was until I check the timeline again. But maybe we're on the road back to success?

    I have not been able to access all day, whether through twitterberry, UT or tinytwitter. BB browser won't connect either.

    A shame, because I use my twitter to keep up with news and such.

    I managed to get one tweet off all day and had the timeline update intermittently in UT. Trying to connect via the BB browser just times out.
