    for some ungodly reason, twitter.com nor any twitter apps like tweetie or twitterific will load for me on my macbook pro since installing snow leopard.

    I can login fine on my iphone and windows 7 pc on the same network. firewall is off on my mac. I have tried firefox and safari and clearing the cache. It just 'fails to open page' on safari and firefox. I have an AirPort Extreme router. Anybody else running into this issue? Or how can I fix this?

    This has got to be the best undocumented feature yet!

    I am all good. I use TweetDeck. Try making a new account just to see if it is a Twitter issue or an account issue.

    I would, but I cannot even access twitter.com in order to do that! Tweetie on the iPhone works for me...I'm completely puzzled by this.

    This makes no sense. Try Camino? Or contact help via your iPhone. I would also go to a different place and use a different network to see how that turns out.

    ok, thanks. i used a different wireless network and can access twitter.com and tweetie on the mac app fine on a different network.

    Would seem to think it's my network then. Although my Windows pc can load twitter just fine. At least I know it's not snow leopard or my mac. It must be something with the AirPort Extreme.

    Well I updated my AirPort Extreme firmware to the latest version and now twitter.com will load. Go figure. Must be something weird combo of old firmware and snow leopard

    Seems extremely odd. But it is fixed.
