We’ve been working with the fine folks over at Stamen Design to help us look at our data from a different perspective. They’re masters of visualizing information in interesting ways—they worked on Digg Labs, for example. While we were working, a fun idea emerged and we thought it would be something worth sharing: Check out Twitter Blocks!

Some friends have chimed in to let us know that our update form is not quite living up to its full potential. In other words, their posts aren’t posting every time. We’re looking at this right now. As soon as we can reproduce it, we’ll identify and fix!
Fixed! This issue was limited to people using www.twitter.com instead of twitter.com. We’ve fixed the routing and all is well!

Today we updated Twitter’s Join page to use recaptcha. Now we can separate the humans from the spambots in style. ReCaptcha is not only fully accessible featuring an audio option, it also helps make information more accessible to the world with it’s innovative book digitizing concept.

We’ve just added Profile Search to Twitter! Now you can search across profile information like name, location, bio, and url. That means you can find more people to follow. The search box is over on the right when you’re signed in. Go ahead and find other Twitter-ers in San Francisco, New York, or Tokyo or find out your friends are already Twittering and you didn’t even know it!

We’re currently working with our hosting provider to identify a solution for some spotty performance today. It’s not affecting everyone but it’s annoying. We’re currently investigating and we’ll keep you posted.
Update (8/16 4:40p): After a long night and some more work this morning, we’ve resolved the slowness that was affecting most users. Sorry for the spottiness.

Yesterday, 14 year old Daniel Brusilovsky came by the Twitter office and interviewed me. Then he stuck around for lunch at Specialties and worked from an extra desk—he was coding up a new version of his site.
