Mashups are great, but the more components are integrated into a single mashup, the more single points of failure are created along the way. I experienced this recently with the piping of my blog feeds to Twitter. Blogs were written using WordPress, syndicated through FeedBurner (now owned by Google), harvested by TwitterFeed, and re-syndicated to Twitter. Somewhere in the process, delays would be created, one day long for posts on IT|Redux, and over a week long for posts on ghalimi.name. Since I control both the source (my WordPress account) and the target (my Twitter account), there wasn’t much need for FeedBurner in the middle, so I recently got rid of it. Let’s see if this fixes the problem.
