This is a real pain in the butt for me. It also isn’t worth it for me to keep Twhirl running constantly because it begins to slow my MacBook down. I posted a query on Seemic the other day …
… but it doesn’t seem to be a common issue so I’m not sure what the solution may be. There is a sort of a support service in the form of Get Satisfaction which refuses to let me sign in with OpenID or send my password to my email account which, on the one hand is associated with an account, and on the other hand is unregistered. I feel a Rolling Stones track coming on … Maybe the problem is with Adobe AIR instead (although I did update to the latest version). Feedalizer isn’t running either so that points to a problem with AIR itself. Juhu runs so maybe not.
Update: Ok, I am trying out Posty instead. Nice app, little too much open space in the window (so not as many new posts) but it kinda blends something like Ping.fm and Twhirl in a single window. Decent alternative.
