Twitter is down today. As it was last week.
This is only mentionable because there are a lot of people at TechTarget (and everywhere) who are tweet addicts (tweetaholics?). They tweet therefore they are, i guess. Anyway, it’s relevant because there are a good number of VARs and integrators who likewise use Twitter to prospect for business, converse on problems of the day etc., find relevant partners or even prospective employees.
Just as with IM, which started with the kiddies and then spread to fogies ( like me), Twitter’s gotta get with the program. If it’s a business application, it has to act like one and (gasp) maybe even charge for interruption-free service. But there’s another problem: Too many tweeters seem to tweet instead of actually do anything worth tweeting about. Oh well. Here’s an illustration.
Before you howl, at least i didn’t say what Steven Colbert said.
Update: Minutes after this posted, Twitter came back online. You can breathe again twit-tards!
