Can you continue posting there even when twitter notifications work?
If enough people want it I suppose I could.

When YOU create a glitch or price mistake :)

Would appreciate it.  This will also help prevent people from posting deals that were already on DDMS since they will now come up in the forum search...

As if anyone does that.  :)
But I think it's a good idea. People are always complaining that they didn't get the tweet.

I would appreciate it if you continue updating this thread.
(I didn't mean this one I meant the one with the deals)

Twitter goes to your phone and tells you what the post is about.

How is this an ideal solution to anything other than Twitter being down?

I get this on my phone too, with  push notifications. I have an issue opening text message links because I use convent eyes so this'll be much easier for me.

OTOH I've never had issues with the texts (unless Twitter was down, obviously), while I've had plenty of emails show up late...

I think the answer is to have two notification threads - one for all posts, ands one for only when Twitter is down.

<ducks and runs :P>

And BTW I don't think it's necessarily a Twitter issue today. I've been getting texts from other websites properly all day; only the DDMS ones are not showing up.

And then one more for "hot" deals when Twitter is down and another for "hot" deals when Twitter is up.

Then we'll divide hot deals into only hot deals for cameras, only hot deals for airfare, only free stuff, only credit card stuff, only...

;)

Hmm. I wonder what gives.

I emailed Twitter support, but their turnaround time is about 7 years.

I would imagine it's a bit annoying for Dan though. I assume that posting to DDFB is a manual process and now this will be too...

I doubt it. You can link Twitter and FB so it'll post automatically.
