twitter's Broken

cnet reports that twitter went down this morning. Perhaps a case of negative network externalities.

(I'd tweet this, but, well, . . . ).
Twitter was inaccessible for at least a half hour on Thursday morning, followed by a period of slowness and sporadic timeouts (and more outright downtime). It's not clear what has caused this. My theory is that it was the volume of millions of people tweeting complaints about why it can't be Friday yet. . . .

  1. This is horrible. I might actually get something done now. :-)

    It will be interesting to learn what happened.
