Rarely the robot fails to contribute some statuses to Twitter. In many cases, that is caused by some problems at Twitter. Anyway,

we cannot take any responsibility for the missed tweets.

The technical maintenance of the server computer occasionally takes place.

During the maintenance, the robot stops working.

Perhaps we might inform you of the stop in advance, but we are very sorry that we cannot do always. We apologise for any inconvienience.
