    Same problem. All of my Twitter-only contacts are gone and my contacts that also have Twitter accounts no longer show the "mention on Twitter option". It's not a huge deal but it is somewhat disappointing.

    Hope somebody (who's not an ***** ;)) figures it out soon.

    Thanks for trying. It's incredibly frustrating. Many of my friends are only on Twitter, not FB. :-(

    Just out of curiosity. Why would you want to have all your Twitter contacts in the people hub? o_O

    I mean, regularly, people follow tons of [strangers] people on Twitter compared to having only friends (less than from Twitter) from Facebook (which is actually what Facebook is about). But of course, this is just a generalization and I'm assuming you have a long list of people who you're following.

    I have the same thing happen on my HTC Arrive but its probably to do with changes at Twitter than something with the update. Not going to worry about it at the moment and wait on some official information. I'll use a twitter app if I need to in the meantime.

    It's a big deal for me because a lot of group activity for some of my tiles comes from Twitter. Because of this, that activity doesn't land in the groups.

    Go to your contact's profile, tap on the link icon at the bottom of the screen - it should give you a suggestion based on your contact's name but if not, then tap on 'choose a contact' and it'll bring you ALL of your Twitter/Facebook/LinkedIn/Messenger contacts (assuming you have already linked your accounts)

    When we do this, Twitter accounts don't show up. Thanks though.

    Yikes, i'm in the same boat. I've had the dev mango for over a month with twitter integration working fine. Now, it's all gone. I had a "detroit lions" group set up with all the players' twitter accounts, and now the group is empty.

    Most of us are just explaining that even when we un-filter our people hub, the twitter contacts do not show up. I can no longer link people to their twitter account because their twitter names do not show up at all, anywhere.

    ^ Yep, what he/she said. Thing is, they were there yesterday and gone today and I didn't alter any settings or filter.

    As for "why", I'm not a big fan of FB (never have been, never will be) and I communicate much more through Twitter than I ever would through FB.

    My twitter "relationships" are built on common interests like webOS (and now WP7) TV shows, bands, Red Wings, hobbies, etc., and I'd rather have those strangers in my people hub than some ******-bag from high school whose friend request I may have reluctantly accepted and don't have the heart to un-friend.

    It's a matter of preference; I know millions of people love FB but Twitter works better for my needs, interests, and time.

    ^ I see!

    Maybe I jumped too quickly to judge - lol I was curious too see if there was anything wrong with my Twitter contacts and voil .. I could not find/link two of my contacts to their Twitter handlers, it just doesn't show up their names in my Twitter contact list! Crossing fingers it's not a bug and might delete my Twitter contacts like you guys are experiencing :(

    Ah, sorry. To clarify: our twitter contacts are still on the Twitter service, just not available through the Mango OS.

    Keep posting and hammering winphonesupport on twitter. I'd like to have them at least acknowledge that it's an issue. the last thing Microsoft needs is more bad P.R. about a bugged windows phone 7 update. they need to get on the horse and fix it pronto before it turns into a rallying cry for android and ios fanboys.

    Unfortunately (for us) they are off of Twitter today. Their twitter feed says they won't be online on the 28th. :-(

    WOW. This has been one crazy week. I don't even know what day it is! LOL Thanks, man. I knew today was going to be rough when I went to put jeans on this morning (casual wear is not until Friday).

    Could it be that the Windows Live service that connects to Twitter has bugged out in some way? :-(

    AFAIK, Windows Live hasn't brought back Twitter to its services per se (you know, when connecting services through your Windows Live account) but it's kinda confusing because when sending a tweet and you look at the service used for such tweet, it reads "WindowsLive" lol

    Might as well go ahead and say I can confirm this on my phone as well (HTC Surround)... no twitter contacts even with the filter option checked.

    Same here. They were there a minute ago (well, yesterday) and now they're not. What's most annoying for me is, when I saw all my twitter contacts in the people hub, I filtered them out because it looked cluttered. Now when I checked the box again to stop filtering them, they haven't come back. I don't even WANT them there, but I'm unhappy because I CAN'T have them there. What's wrong with me?
