Ok Tumblr, This Is Getting Just A Little Embarrassing

Micro-blogging sensation Tumblr is down again. It’s only been a good week since the service was unavailable for more than 24 hours (yes, hours, not minutes).

I’m not even a Tumblr user, but this is getting out of hand.

Update: and they’re partially back up now, but still terribly unstable.

I mean, even Twitter is up for the moment, but their status blog – hosted on Tumblr – is down. How’s that for irony?

Worse, my colleague MG Siegler’s personal blog is also – gasp – down!

We’ll check back in a day or so to see if Tumblr is back up.

At least they’re aware of the issues.

Update 2: wow they totally deleted that tweet! Here’s what it said:
