@Nurph's Up - 26/07/2013 - Watch This Whitespace

@Nurph said: Hey everyone
@Eggdough said: @Nurph hey there!
@Nurph said: @Eggdough it's been a quiet week on the new feature front. However, we've vastly improved the tweet publishing stability!
@Eggdough said: @Nurph that's great! Every once in a while a tweet wouldn't publish, but it sounds like you've fixed that.
@Nurph said: @Eggdough sure have! It was due to character limit adjustments when a shortened URL is included in the tweet. All sorted now.
@Nurph said: @Eggdough also there's some very exciting new features in the works. Watch this whitespace!

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug whereby the character limit of your tweet was too long because of how Twitter handles shortened URLs (spotted by @Nurph).
  • Made further upgrades to the way that the tweet publishing is handled (we now have a "retry" process that can handle failed tweets).

New Features

  • No new features this week. But there's lots - and I mean #LOTS - in the works.

Until Next Time

Have a great weekend everyone.
