Twitter is Down! (I forgot how much I miss typing that)

Twitter is down. Super down. The status blog is silent on the issue, although the error message untruthfully says the site is down for database maintenance. If it was maintenance, it would be noted on the status blog. This is maintenance in the same way open heart surgery after a heart attack is maintenance.

We’ll know soon enough what happened. But for now it’s just nice to remember the good ‘ol days when we celebrated entire days going by without Twitter going down. The site has been far too stable lately, and I was beginning to get suspicious.

Update: Ok, it’s back. That was fun while it lasted.
