    Twitter Blog: Denial of Service Attack

    Looks like Twitter's got their act together, they got back online in 90 minutes, but that type of attack really is just a minor thing to a company like Twitter, they need to boost and make better load balancing servers it looks like.

    Though I've never used it, why is twitter all the rave these days?

    I'll twitter what I'm doing when I'm in Detroit on Monday for example.

    I ready there was an event planning/catering company that used Twitter so customers could see where the guy was all the time and when they would be traveling to next. It doesn't HAVE to be twitter, but mobile text updates available to a large number of people is what's happening.
