Best Graphic RE: Twitter Downtime

It is amazing how many people have posted about Twitter being down for an equivalent of 6 days since February. I have seen comments about people recommending a change in infrastructure, or moving to another service. Pretty high maintenance end users. I think 98% downtime is pretty commendable for an up and coming company. I have talked to folks whose Corporate email systems are down on average a couple of hours a week or key internal tools go down for days at a time. That is a serious issue where 99.999% uptime is a must.

I just hope the people complaining about the downtime are the individual's actually using twitter. It seems like more and more people like to jump on the bandwagon of broadcasting bad news. The geekandpoke blog illustrates the side effects of the "catastrophic" downtime best.
