Yep, Twitter is Down
Ian Lurie Oct 8 2009
It’s not just you – as reported by The Guardian and a bunch of other publications, Twitter is having some kind of bizarre problem. Again.
If I had $100 million in investment dollars, my web site would never ever go down. I’d put servers in orbit, for God’s sake. I’d pay someone $40k/year to stare at a traffic monitor and switch on an extra server farm that’s in a concrete bunker, just-in-case.
This is the kind of thing that makes me want to punch overly smug owners of meteoric startups in the face.
I’m just sayin’.
