I am definitely not a twitterholic but it is interesting to know that I may not have tweeted about my most recent Blog post or about the fungi-ridden bread I ate in the morning but a week back I tweeted about this problem which I suppose I was one of the first user to face. My tweet was something like this “Where did the tweets made to me go? My @me page is almost empty”.
