Twitter Down Again, This Time It’s Their Fault
This is getting a bit boring, but here we go again… Twitter is down. Unlike last night, tonight they are saying that today’s service interruption is their fault. On the developer group, developer Alex Payne explains why the service is down currently, "We had another brief cache outage, reverted that deploy, and then killed the load balancer at our managed host. We’re working with our hosting provider to bring everything back up. Hang tight, and sincere apologies. "
Update: 6:45pm Eastern – Twitter is back in what I am calling "recovery mode" – I hope it’s not like Windows recovery mode!
Here are some new ideas on how to use the time:
consider loading up Pownce – it’s like stocking up on bread and milk when a storm is coming
go buy the sarah lacy Web 2.0 book on amazon or grab a 40% off coupon and get it at borders
install new ink in your printer
open the pc and dust it
go get a pizza and a beer
