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?

It serves different use cases.  A notification or a tweet is a moment in time.  An email is something that can be queued and looked at in an order.  Different strokes for different folks.

Hmm. I wonder what gives.

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

Remind me to keep my phone off on that day. It'll sound like when I turn my phone back on after an international flight.

Done. My guess is they say to fill out a support form that they'll get to in a year.
Twitter has awful CS.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

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...

+1, though I do like it, it's a one stop shop now on DDF.

I liked the ticker better. Not sure why we that was short lived.

Maybe if you arrange a couple thousand retweets, it might get some priority.

Not a bad idea, though it will be hard to get the word out with SMS being down :P
What's a good hashtag?

I doubt it. You can link Twitter and FB so it'll post automatically.
Except that the DDMS posts get to DDFB hours after they were originally posted - and in groups. Which leads me to believe that it's manual.

This can also be advertised on the ms as another way to get notified about deals. Not everyone uses twitter. I would make a post about this

If this goes on for another few hours, it would definitely justify it's own DDMS post, IMHO.

Also, I'm not a Twitter expert, but I have a hunch that @support won't get blasted if people just retweet, I think everyone has to click "quote" and then add RT, like;

RT @DansDeals: @Support My followers have not been getting my tweets or mobile notifications from my tweets since this morning. Any idea what the issue is?

That way they get a thousand individual tweets.
