Yes, Twitter was just down. Like me, I’m sure that every time the network freezes or disappears completely you fear the absolute worst.
The thing is, one day, inevitably, something awful will happen. Servers will crash, hackers will run riot, and data will be lost. Your data.
I’m reminded once again why a facility to both backup and (critically) restore your tweets is nothing short of essential. Nobody likes the idea of having to start over. Particularly if it’s not your fault.
