Bug Description

I use gwibber solely with Twitter. For some reason, even after closing
and restarting gwibber, gwibber accepts a tweet and proceeds to discard
it instead of posting it. This is irritatingly broken. If, for any
reason, gwibber cannot post the message, it *must* *immediately* inform
the user and retain the message in the message field instead of
discarding it.
