I gave it a few minutes and I must admit they have done a splendid job although there are still bugs in it like, I was not able to pull anyone’s twitter profile even after multiple click using Firefox browser. Hopefully it will improve in near future.
How did you find Slices for Android? if its not your favorite twitter application, which one is it and why? I’d love to know about it in the comments below
I have been experimenting with NAGIOS3 on Ubuntu (I will write a how-to-install on NAGIOS later) and it has served me very good in monitoring my 7 VPS from different providers in different part of the world. I have already recorded 3 hours of downtime from ThrustVPS which is a great deal for me. I now know which VPS has the best time and which ones have hiccups (e.g. my 2Host VPS gave me two unreachable notifications but the VPS was running and still reports the uptime as 4 days).
I blogged about Twitter’s invalid search results in an early post titled Twitter Search gone mad!. Today I noticed the same thing again when I logged in to HashPakistan‘s control panel. There are lots of invalid tweets. e.g. look at the one below
Well, my initial estimates were wrong. I thought I could retweet the posts and Twitter would give me accurate results. The problem is with twitter results. They are giving me wrong and irrelevant results.
Also, when I ask Twitter to only send me “positive” tweets, it sometimes does not mark most of the positive tweets as “positive”, in fact they are not marked at all. So there are the “positive” tweets, “negative” tweets, “questions” and “unknown” (or “unrated”) tweets. A quick look at these tweets and I can see many of them as good ones that should have been retweeted but they were not.
To get over this situation, I need to have an admin panel where I can see statistics and possibly “approve” the negative / unrated tweets.
Having previous experience working in Zend Framework, CakePHP and CodeIgniter, I would prefer to build it inCode Igniter. I will keep this page updated with more info.
Yes, I know what I just said that … its true because my new project HashPakistan is using Twitter Search API to get all posts with hashtag #Pakistan and last night twitter gave it results containing #ashes (and has nothing to do with Pakistan).
Twitter says “A critical network upgrade must be performed to ensure continued operation of Twitter. In coordination with Twitter, our network host had planned this upgrade for tonight. However, our network partners at NTT America recognize the role Twitter is currently playing as an important communication tool in Iran. Tonight’s planned maintenance has been rescheduled to tomorrow between 2-3p PST (1:30a in Iran).
Our partners are taking a huge risk not just for Twitter but also the other services they support worldwide—we commend them for being flexible in what is essentially an inflexible situation. We chose NTT America Enterprise Hosting Services early last year specifically because of their impeccable history of reliability and global perspective. Today’s decision and actions continue to prove why NTT America is such a powerful partner for Twitter.”
