Hi Chris, I'm one of the engineers at Twitter and a regular reader of your blog.

A lot of people seem to really "get" Twitter once they've found a desktop client that suits their reading and updating habits. For example, many Mac users enjoy Twitteriffic, and a growing number of power users are trying Ed Finkler's Spaz, which is built on Adobe's AIR platform and runs on OS X and Windows. You can find a comprehensive list of applications that talk to our API at the Twitter Fan Wiki.

We're aware of our intermittent slowness and availability, and we're working every day to make our system rock-solid. We have some changes coming in both application architecture and infrastructure that should really improve things over the next couple months.

Thanks for trying out Twitter!
