The headline on Pinpal states - The new casual dating service for Pinterest fans. It’s more than influence – it’s Pinfluence!! I first noticed this today on @dannybrown 's website where he had the shocking title of PinPal Wants to Use Your Friends to Create a Sex Meat Market This created a lot of chatter and comments from various people including many tweets from Jimmy the co-founder of Pinpal - @pinpalwizard who obviously wasn't happy that people were not saying good things about his site, which has just been launched in beta - midnight on the 31st of March. Great timing everyone thinks. Craig andrews from Peerindex tweeted this And Sarah Evans tweeted this Its certainly got a lot of attention since it was launched in beta not 24hours ago. What Pinpal does... It is basically a dating service, that connects you with your best match and to find your match, it searches through your favorite social networks to find your friends and also their friends then, finds you the best matches, also using Klout scores in the formula.

Where are my @mentions!! Did you think you were very unpopular today, were you worried that you weren't getting many Tweets? Its okay it's not just you - many people have not been getting @mentions or replies for a few hours now, some since yesterday. This is a Twitter.com problem so changing applications isn't going to help I'm afraid, you'll have have to keep a good eye on your timeline for @mentions or try searching, which isn't great. Something like a Tweetdeck search would be best. I first noticed people complaining about missing tweets this morning when Jack Schofield - British Technology Journalist tweeted out. And then later today - the lovely Dawn Porter - British television presenter and writer wrote. Poor Dawn was very upset, she said that she was getting DM's but no replies and it was like talking to herself! There doesn't appear to be anything regarding this on the Twitter Status page as yet about the missing mentions, and @twitter desite all the plea's for help have said nothing, and as they don't appear to have anyone [...]
You may have noticed that twitter has made some changes today; Twitter's homepage has been redesigned into a more formal layout. The top tweets have been replaced with popular tweeters profile pictures which take you to their twitter page when you click. Maybe this was the reason for the downtime earlier. The background image is a map now, which fits with the slogan "instant updates from your friends, industry experts, favorite celebrites, and what's happening around the world." This comes just days after Twitter announced on their Twitter blog, that they have made it much easier to find and follower Twitter accounts based on your interests. See here Discover new accounts and search like a pro. I'm glad to say that the old twitter design is still there for tweeting.
