HootSuite recovers from Twitter’s DOS attack, some early upgrade info

By HootSuite • 5 years ago • 7 Comments

Hello Hootsuite users,We’ve been busy since we opened up early upgrades to Hootsuite 2.0, responding to questions, listening to your ideas, working out kinks, and dealing with a major denial of service attack on Twitter.

Some of you have noticed some glitches with your columns for search terms and groups. We have implemented some improvements on our end, and Twitter has assured us that we can expect to have everything working on their end by Monday. Check out the Twitter Blog page for more info on the attack and Twitter’s response.

Also, a reminder: If you’re not one of the thousands that has already done so, you’re still invited to tweet for an optional early upgrade to Hootsuite 2.0. Soon, we’ll be opening Hootsuite 2.0 to everyone, with no upgrade tweet required. The choice is yours: tweet your love, and get all the features of HootSuite 2.0 today, or wait a little bit and get them later.

Finally, thanks to everyone who has taken the time to check out HootSuite 2.0 and provide us with your thoughts and ideas. Here’s one of our favourites.

I first heard of this on G4TV's Attack of the Show. I didn't experience any issues myself, but nice recovery anyway HootSuite.
