The first thing I do when I wake up on an ordinary day is check my e-mail and Twitter, and today was an ordinary day until I met some strange messages regarding Foller.me in my inbox. Why is everybody suddenly so interested? Turns out that this day is not ordinary at all. Yes, Foller.me gets covered by Adam Ostrow at Mashable! The post became part of the Mashable’s Spark of Genius series via the Microsoft BizSpark programme. I came accross Microsoft BizSpark a few months ago but I weren’t too excited as all they had to offer was based on Microsoft technology while Foller.me is based on open source software.
Update: Due to the heavy traffic from Mashable and Twitter today, some profiles on Foller.me today turned out as “Not found”. I’m not quite sure about the technical reasons but I’m investigating certain profiles and prepairing to write a fix to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Sorry for all the inconvenience caused. After all this is my first ever Twitter app! It’ll get better, I promise!
