On February 7th, 2013 I noticed that I got error messages in the service that checks locations and sends tweets.

I checked and realised that Fire Eagle was gone.

The same day, Yahoo tweeted: "Fire Eagle is down at the moment."

Since then, nothing changed - the Fire Eagle is still offline and it's unlikely that it will come back.

So that's that. I switched off the service and deleted the database.

It was nice while it lasted - thanks to the people from Yahoo! Brickhouse who have what I still consider to be one of the earliest and best examples of OAuth.

And thank you, who used EagleTweet.

I might build a successor for EagleTweet - if I ever get around to do that, I will update you over on Twitter. Both on @eagletweet and on my personal account @dominik.
