Twitter's outages are becoming more and more painful for us. Not because we're addicted to the service, but because Twitter outages seem to bring out the worst in people. Take Allen Stern of CenterNetworks, for example. Ordinarily a normal, decent person, during a recent outage, he created the video embedded below. It's titled "Twitter Come Back" and it involves an approximation of singing. Then, for more punishment, view Darren Barefoot's video on the same topic. What we're really looking forward to: Behind-the-scenes spin doctoring on whether this is the fault of Twitter's former chief architect, Blaine Cook, or the service's incompetent management.
