iTunes Could Not Back Up The iPhone Because The Backup Was Corrupt

Earlier when I plugged my iPhone into my laptop via USB to charge it I got a pop up error message stating that the sync process with iTunes could not take place because the iPhone backup was corrupted. I believe yesterday in the middle of syncing with iTunes I had to unplug my iPhone and it must have corrupted the backup that was in process. Fixing this problem is easily accomplished by deleting the backup file that iTunes stores. Below I have more details about the error itself as well as steps on how to resolve the issue.

Remove Your Cell Phone Device From Your Twitter Account And Add The Number to a New Twitter Account

Recently I decided to split my Twitter feeds into personal and business so it would be easier to read technical tweets separate and distinct from the personal Twitter feeds I wanted to follow. So I decided to keep the first account for my personal account since my friends will already know how to find me and then open a new account for getting technical provider tweet updates and various other technical blogs Twitter feeds. So this left me with a minor issue which was my cell phone was configured already for my personal Twitter account though I needed to use it for my new account. I will be using the new account to get text messages for immediate notification if one of the providers I use is having some sort of outage.

You are only allowed to have a phone number, in this case my cell phone, configured for one Twitter account. So to accomplish my goal of splitting out the technical tweets from the personal tweets I needed to move my cell phone over to the new account. Follow the below instructions to move your mobile phone number from one Twitter account to another Twitter account.
