Twitter is down due to excessive use of ASP.

I think outage can no longer the appropriate term when a social networking site goes down, such is the fury generated. Perhaps outrage is a better term?

It's OK, it's just the Feds installing their backdoor monitoring equipment. Normal service will returned soon.

BBC

This was #3 on the BBC New website a few minutes ago, after (1) Olympics (2) Natwest snafu.

Rare to have two-out-of-three top headlines about tech glitches. Especially when there's no shortage of othe stuff happening in the world today.

Re: BBC

It's part of the testing for world war 3.0 - they are just seeing how the public cope with the idea of social networking rationing!

I cant wait for the government propaganda slogans...

Loose tweets, sink fleets

A stray like will down a flight

Skype a stranger, put your country in danger

And my personal fave - Check-in your location - and kill your whole family!

Shooting Google+ in a barrel

Actually I prefer Google+ to Twitter or even Facebook. I rather like its microblogging feature, even if it's a step down from Buzz.

Besides, what do they say about dead horses?

One of the thngs they say about dead horses is that if you're bored or alone, you can open them up and climb inside for whatever gratification it gives you.

Re: Shooting Google+ in a barrel

So how is working [sic] for Google, xperroni?

Why, I didn't know How is working for Google. Perhaps I should ask for a recommendation?

By the way, what about your English classes? Not going very well, I gather?

Bloody Typical

I got an email from OneLouder saying they'd fixed a Facebook connectivity issue I'd reported to them and the whole sodding Twitter service fell on its arse as soon as I fired up TweetCaster. Maybe it was me wot caused it????

Only the mindless numpties that spend most of their workday on it or facebook while the rest of us are actually working, the demographic makes up approximately 75% of the human race that has Internet access
