The Twitter outage persists

Monday, April 21, 2008 by Dave Winer.

Monday morning, the outage that started Friday night, is still going on.  Permalink to this paragraph

As a test, I posted a picture last night before signing off, only 62 reads, which is very low for a link that should have gone to over 8000 people. (Admittedly it was Sunday night in the Calif, but Twitter is a world wide thing, and it's already 7:30AM on the east coast of the United States.) Permalink to this paragraph

Also, still no notice of the outage and what they're doing to clear it on the Twitter blog. Permalink to this paragraph
