    App's OAuth token is pulled a day after nearly 2,000 people used
    it to send a wave of simultaneous tweets to a pair of U.S. senators.

    Just a day after its launch, the Thunderclap app has apparently been silenced by Twitter.
    The app, which allows multiple users to send the same tweet simultaneously, helps users amplify their message by sending a wave of tweets en masse. The app was used for the first time yesterday when 1,922 users sent simultaneous tweets to a pair of U.S. senators.
    After a second "thunderclap" was sent to Congress today, the so-called crowdspeaking platform suddenly found itself shut out of Twitter, as the New York company explained in a tweet:

    " We're having some technical issues with Twitter. Should be back up shortly. Got a question or want to start a thndrclp? help@thunderclap.com"
