Not again; Twitter goes Down For Maintenance

OK, I like Twitter a lot, but what is up Twitter is down!

This seems to be happening more, recently, than in the last several months.

Twitter is amazing in many ways, What’s going on, guys?

What exactly the problem is, is not yet known.

It’s also clear that it’s become an integral part of communication for some of us, I’m one of those people. This outage is giving me ideas for a low-tech decentralized way to do Twitter with RSS and software running on the desktop.

What happens to the Twitterati when the site goes down for scheduled maintenance?

Hopefully the downtime will be short, but it’s over 30 minutes already which is bad enough.

If someone can shed any light on this, please post a comment here-
