Default UberTwitter hits Trending Topics

Please Login to Remove!

Looks like UberTwitter is down atm and has hit Twitter's trending topics as a result. I can't access any twitter service from my BB currently, so it wouldn't surprise me given the Twitter denial of service earlier...

Twitter Status - Ongoing denial-of-service attack

I can get to the main Twitter site on my PC but I cannot login to my account. Keep getting a "Internet Explorer cannot display page" message.

I was actually able to get an follower update through on TwitterBerry at 1:20 EDT. However, it was a one-time thing. Not able to tweet or update since then.

I always used TwitterBerry and Thursday (8/6) it went down and I couldn't get it to work at all even after deleting and re-downloading the app. Finally at about 1:30am (EST) today (8/8) I gave up, deleted the app and downloaded UberTwitter. It works fine and I actually like it more. (Also, you can follow me on there @kashiiagvk haha)

It's on trending topics because of the new beta version I think.
