Errors and Inconsistencies on Twitter

Social Networking sites like Twitter are fantastic - but often they #fail in their UI/UX. I collect and report problems on other networks like LinkedIn already. Here are some on Twitter. I am decibelplaces on Twitter, you are welcome to connect with me on all my social accounts, here is my Appearoo profile (formerly XeeMe) with links to them.

My Writers List on Twitter Stopped Working

One of my lists is for writers. I added about 10 people to it. Then I stopped being able to add members. I contacted Twitter, but they didn't help. I created a second list for writers, and copied the members from the original list.

When trying to add someone to the list, I click on the checkbox next to the list name and nothing happens. When trying to modify or delete the bad list, I get an Internal server error message.

I was the first person to add a comment on an article on LinkedIn. However, after my comment was posted, the comment box still said: "Be the first to comment and start the conversation!"

Panic on Twitter: 0 followers, 0 following

Twitter addicts freaked out today when they discovered they had 0 followers.

This is because of a "rollback" after a bug was discovered by Twitter that permitted a user to “force” other users to follow them.

The status quo ante should be restored soon. Listed contacts remain intact, since they were listed by the account owner.
