Twitter is down. Is this a sign of immaturity or genius?
Twitter is down right now - it's part of a scheduled maintenance window that started at 5 PM ET. This was rescheduled from an overnight window to enable continued discussion in Iran over Twitter as my colleague Alex Goldman reported earlier today.
That's all fine and nice, and a brilliant altruistic move- but right now, I'm suffering from Twitter withdrawal.
But wait, I understand that it's a maintenance thing from Twitter's carrier NTT, but does that mean that Twitter is not using multiple carriers?
Does it mean that Twitter has a single point of failure?
