The FriendFeed search of the hour - "missing followers"

I bet you a lot of people are searching for the phrase "missing followers" right now.

Here are the FriendFeed results for that search.

To prove that Twitter is still a small-time application, Yahoo Buzz has no results.

(Obviously, if you see this blog post in 2012 and click on the links above, you won't get the results I'm getting today. At least I hope so.)

All of the activity will eventually lead to this post in the Twitter Status blog. Here's how it currently reads (note that it's being updated):

Folks are reporting problems with missing followers - that is, seeing the follower counts drop on their profile pages.

We’re looking into this now.

Update: We’re going to go into maintenance mode to correct this problem.

Update (5:08p): We are out of maintenance mode. The missing followers and relationships are being restored. It may take several hours for your relationships to be back to the way they were before this outage occurred. We sincerely apologize for the disruption in service.

I do have to say that Twitter is doing much better in communicating issues and status than they were a few months ago. Kudos.
