Why can't you use the SWTOR site to update people about SWTOR? Why does everyone try to force me to use Twitter? You shouldn't be exclusively using a third party site for stuff like this. It would take 5 seconds to copy/paste to your own forum.
As stated in the post, SWTOR.COM is always down during maintenance. Any time there's a delay in the maintenance, it's nice for them to be able to convey why there is one. Not that that keeps people from complaining about the delay anyway.
