Umh, those developer glitches.
It happens to all of us, even the best of companies. Even WhatsApp was down for a few hours last week.

Yep! Glitches happen...

Agradecida con usted amigo por incluir mi pequeño concurso 🥰, el propósito es para que las personas expresen las actividades que hicieron durante el día sin Steemit
Me emocioné mucho cuando llegaron de nuevo las recompensas acumuladas de TRX, llegaron justo en el momento indicado para costear unos exámenes de laboratorio para mi papá
Interesante concurso el de @ rexthetech, quizás convenza a mi mamá de cocinar algo delicioso
Saludos, muy buena recopilación de noticias
