It’s a smart move. To me, Connect never really computed particularly well as it implied that an action was about to take place, and Notifications makes a lot more sense.

Notifications aside, Twitter rolled back the other changes that triggered the outage yesterday – no word what they were or whether we’re likely to see them anytime soon.
