T-Mobile Blocks Twitter – No Need to Worry About Saturday Downtime!
I really hope that the people on Twitterdiction aren’t using T-Mobile! If so, NO TWITTER FOR YOU! says Alternageek. It looks like they spoke with first level customer service (even tho they are called Executive Customer Response) based on the following response:
”T-Mobile would like to bring to your attention that the Terms and Conditions of service, to which you agreed at activation, indicate “… some Services are not available on third-party networks or while roaming. We may impose credit, usage, or other limits to Service, cancel or suspend Service, or block certain types of calls, messages, or sessions (such as international, 900, or 976 calls) at our discretion.” Therefore, T-Mobile is not in violation of any agreement by not providing service to Twitter. T-Mobile regrets any inconvenience, however please note that if you remain under contract and choose to cancel service, you will be responsible for the $200 early termination fee that would be assessed to the account at cancellation.”
So for those of you on T-Mobile, good news, no worries about the 12-hour Twitter maintenance program on Saturday. In all seriousness, T-Mobile is probably blocking it because they don’t know what Twitter is and that it’s not an "evil" service.
Update: Nick says he can receive tweety but not send tweety – so he has a positive influx of tweeties.
