Silent Season #whentwitterwasdown

I didn’t even really use twitter till recently. And then, today… it disappeared. ANd now, i really have no idea what to do about it. I don’t think any of the estimated 50Million twitterers have any idea what to do actually.

The tweets as stopped. It was ominous as Rachel Carson’s “Silent Spring”. And the reason for the outage was ominous too

… as we move more of our lives to the “cloud” the servers and DNS providers are the new “towers” that terrorists will be throwing themselves against now.

Well, at least its back up now

In unrelated news, MySPace is giving users a chance to go to Davos as a citizen journalist. NICE #kudos
