Twitter Is Down Again: Quit Twitter For The Twit-Out
Just a reminder: The “Twit-Out” – a day long Twitter boycott is going on tomorrow. Quit Twitter (love the sound of that) to send a message that you’re sick of the outages and the company needs to get its act together.
I’ve had my own personal boycott going on since last week and the world hasn’t ended. Since then, Twitter has gone down twice, once today. The outages occur so often that even Mike Arrington of TechCrunch has taken notice. Jeremiah Owyang suggests FriendFeed as an alternative (so do I). Personally, I have found FriendFeed a decent replacement as far meme tracking.
Update: Here’s a Twit-Out home page.
Twitter needs to get with the program. The negative publicity is spreading. Twitter is becoming a joke, and FriendFeed is reaping all the benefits.
