Twitter: downtime as a matter of course

By Sparky | July 23, 2008

What is it about Twitter that makes it such a success in spite of frequent and continued service availability issues? If you ask me it’s a rabid user base (like me) willing to use the service in the face of hour after hour of downtime, tweet after tweet lost to the ether. Any other service this unreliable would be hard pressed to keep the numbers of users around that are causing Twitters instability in recent months.

Why so rabid a user base? You have me at that one – I’m hooked and have no clue why.
