    Twitter frustrations

    It seems Twitter is down almost all day these days, it only loads the top and the rest is white, other days it shows a whale saying the system is overloaded. It also seems that trying to get twitter to load in Firefox will never happen anymore though the best luck is done through Chrome, Safari and Opera?

    What is going on with Twitter these days? Beyond frustrating!

    Ditto. Twitter has been hit-and-miss for me during recent times. A number of twitter feeds (is that the right term?) just get stuck while loading. :/

    Tell me about it, perhaps it is time for something new since Twitter can't seem to get a grip.

    for SEO? Are you sure? I tried it, but it's not really working, unless u have tonnes of followers, and they must be active twitters. if not, wht u tweet is pointless.

    I think that makes absolute sense. If you don't have zillion followers who are hyper-active, then twitting is a waste of time.

    Twitter does good back linking, but also when google bot notices u often and if ppl retweet.
    Now I know why ppl pay for retweet.

    I miss those days. They bring back fond memories of when the fail whale was the most popular whale on the planet.

    Wrong. Twitter links, I'm pretty sure are no follow. Like most major social media platforms.

    Social media is no way related to SEO nor will it help your SEO, no matter what 'experts' will try and tell you.

    I actually can't access twitter from my desktop. I get the same problem as described above. However, it loads immediately without problem from my laptop.

    Both are running Chrome too - just one is Windows 7, the other OSX
