Twitter Bootstrapping Email

SaaS developers, if you notice that there is a bug that has affected several users, how do you deal with information about the fix?

• Do you inform the affected users about the fix by email?

• Do you announce the issue and the fix publicly on Twitter or elsewhere?

• Or do you just silently move on?

And what is the best practice in this regard?

Depends on how big the bug is. Often just fix and move on.

My bug was critical, and could have affected around 3 new users.

New users, honestly, I wouldn’t reach out to. I just consider them lost leads unless they’re in the newsletter list and then I would announce it via that

If the users complained or you know they must have noticed: send an email with apologies, explanation and that you fixed it. If somebody made it public, also publish the email’s text somewhere. Else: just move on

Good tips!

Since they are only 3 I would reach out to them personally (email, or twitter). It’s also a great excuse to ask for feedback
