Flight MH370: Flightradar24 Criticizes Erroneous Reports & Wasted Time for Missing Plane

Last Known Position of Flight MH370

     On March 7, (2014) at 5:30 (pacific time) Flightradar24 (a flight tracker that shows live air traffic from around the world) tweeted:
"Media reports that Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 is missing. Flightradar24 is right now analysing radar data for this flight."

30 Minutes later they followed up with:
"Flight #MH370 disappeared from Flightradar24 at 17.19UTC time between Malaysia and Vietnam"

The follwoing day Flightradar24 reported on their FaceBook Page:
A Boeing 777 from Malaysia Airlines has been missing between Malaysia and Vietnam for about 12 hours. Flight #MH370 took off from Kuala Lumpur at 16:41 UTC time and disappeared from at 17:20 UTC time.

At 23:24 UTC time Malaysia Airlines published a press release that aircraft has lost contact with ATC at 18:40 UTC (after 2 hours). This incorrect time report made media speculate all night about a crash in the jungle somewhere between Vietnam and China.

It took 11 hours until about 03:00 UTC until a search and rescue operation was started in the area of Gulf of Thailand where Flightradar24 reported lost radar contact.

It feels very frustrating that the incorrect reports of lost contact after 2 hours has made that Flightradar24 data of lost contact after 40 minutes, has been ignored for so many hours.
