If you’ve posted some reports to Commuter Feed over the last week or so, you’ll have noticed they either haven’t shown up, or showed up days after they were posted. This issue is a result of the much-publicized Twitter meltdown over the past few months. Apparently Twitter has pulled our ability to collect your “@commuter” replies sporadically over the past week. According to their status blog, it should be fixed this week, but we’ll see. In the mean time, hang in there…

It appears that the problem with the Pownce API has been resolved. Pownce away.

Just wanted to let you know we’ve become aware of a problem where posts to Commuter Feed from Pownce are not showing. We believe this situation is related to an error at Pownce’s API so we’ll be waiting to see when its fixed. In the mean time you can use Twitter.

Yes thats right – we have the most “replied to” Tweet of all time. Check it out: http://twitbuzz.com/conv/alltime/
OK, yes we received this honor on a technicality. Some clever hacker out there plugged us into the Bankok traffic monitoring system a while back, and it looks like the Thai freeways have been giving us hundreds of reports per day. But hey, they’re still replies.
So eat it, FoodFeed!
(Yea I’m sure they get that pun all the time, whatever)
Here is the blog post where I learned of this great achievement: http://en.moraaz.org/twitbuzz-tracking-the-memes-of-twitter/

If you didn’t know already, Commuter Feed works with Pownce as well as Twitter.
To use Commuter Feed on Pownce, use it the same as you would Twitter (including the “@commuter” and city code), but be sure to send your update to “The Public” or it won’t show.
If you have any issues, make sure to report them in our Google Group.
