Twitter is keeping up with the new feature roll out, and during the great week for mobile apps too. They've launched their API for SMS command queries today, enabling the use of command queries to be text to a twitter username in order to retrieve information. Now you can send a query to "weather" in order to have the latest weather updates sent to you via SMS. And as expected, Twitter's announcement is seemingly correlated with their slow page loads.
I have found Twitter to be infuriatingly slow at times. That said the service seems to be growing rather rapidly both in popularity and new "features" that keep getting added. Despite the slow page loads at times I love Twitter.
