Twitter Gets Twisted
Twitter suffered intermittent outages through much of June, spates of downtime that could continue through July.
The cloud-based micro-blogging monster blames the outages on events such as World Cup 2010, which is prompting a massive increase in activity that the site just can't handle.
Trouble started on June 11 when Twitter suffered poor site performance and a host of errors due to high capacity. Issues persisted on Monday, June 14 with several hours of ups and downs. Twitter has said periodic outages could continue through the beginning of July, but that it is making internal network adjustments in hopes to avoid future problems.
