Good news for those experiencing the Mango-Twitter issue we reported on earlier. If you recall, a lot of people lost the Twitter contact integration with their People Hub over the last 24 hrs. It was confirmed by @winphonesupport who has their team looking into it and we're told by another source it has to do with Twitter modifying their API, causing a connection issue with Windows LIVE (who handles the syncing in Mango).

The workaround discovered is simple enough and has been confirmed by @winphonesupport and us:

  • Delete Twitter account under Settings
  • Power cycle phone
  • Re-add Twitter account

Yeah, all in all quite simple. Though it take awhile for our account to be re-setup, possibly due to ongoing changes on Microsoft's LIVE servers.
