Did you survive the Twitter down time today?

Thursday, August 06, 2009

Earlier today the popular micro-blogging service that is Twitter was maliciously attacked, causing an almost two hour hiatus of people being able to see what other people were tweeting.

As you may imagine an outage of this magnitude would be frustrating for many office workers across the United States as Twitter is often snuck into the office computers via discreet Twitter programs like Spreadtweet, which disguises Twitter streams as a good old fashioned Excel spreadsheet.

For future reference, if you are having trouble logging into and using the Twitter service and want to ensure that the problem is not on your end, be sure to stop by the official Twitter Blog. Outage updates of any severe nature will surely be posted there.

Or you can stop by IsTwitterDown.com, which will inform you quite simply as to whether Twitter is up and running or not. For more information on what happens or what to do when Twitter is down, visit WhenTwitterIsDown.com.
