What happened to Hillary Clinton's friends on MySpace.com? A day ago, she had about 22,000; now her site lists only 12,177. For a couple of hours today, if you tried to go to http://www.myspace.com/hillaryclinton2008, you saw this:
The good news is Clinton's page is up again, but clearly this can't be a happy day in Peter Daou's office.
On Hillary's MySpace page, there's a message reading:
For some reason Myspace deleted us recently. We are working to get back to 24,000 friends. Please re-add us send out a bulletin letting your friends know to support Hillary on Myspace
I've put calls into both the Clinton campaign and to MySpace asking for clarification. Stay tuned.
UPDATE: Peter Daou emailed me to say: "It's an unofficial page, but my understanding is that the person who runs the page had a technical problem and had to recreate the page. He's back up
to more than half the members in a little over 24 hours."
