SXSW: Hats Off To The Twitter Team
Lots of people (including us) were wondering how well Twitter would handle SXSW after some brief outages at FOWA. The Twitter team explained how they would handle the surge in messages before we boarded planes for Austin. Though the chatter on Friday was around how long it would be before Twitter went down and how we would all use morse code to effectively communicate.
While the WiFi in the hotels, bars and in the convention center itself was barely working for the majority of the event (though better than last year), Twitter was up the entire time. Not one blip.
This is a virtual high-5 to the entire Twitter team for a job well done!
