I’m blogging in the style of twitter, for those of you in withdrawal due to it’s recent availability issues. Got to stick to 140 char limit
Confused by the title of this post? It refers to a headline in ‘The Sun’ (UK ‘Newspaper’) that is so famous in the UK it’s a popular phrase
Twitter is a free service. No advertising, no fees, no hidden charges, no taxes, no problem. It is used by free loaders like me (and you?)
@Twitter was down a bit over this weekend, it has disabled some features and limited usage levels on others while it sorts out it’s problems
Bullet Proof infrastructure anyone can do, just hire the experienced people and buy a lot of hardware and software, easy, but it will cost $
I used to use, Webvan which built a great infrastructure, had some great technology and spent $1 Billion. It never made a cent and went bust
If ‘many people depend’ on @twitter, would they all pay to use it? If they guaranteed 99.9999% availability how much would you pay for it?
Did you notice every paragraph is exactly the 140 characters long? One great thing about twitter is it forces people to be much less verbose
