Just tried logging into Twitter – http://twitter.com/login using Internet Explorer to post about something only to find after logging in, I was presented with a nice bit of XML. Reading through I noticed they use Amazon’s S3 service. In light of the issues with Amazon S3 in recent days, I wonder if it’s a Twitter issue or Amazon S3 issue? Who knows? – It’s just a pain…
Still doing it now after clearing cache, rebooting browser etc – so that’s about 15 mins… I think that Twitter is interesting, but I hope they can solve all these ongoing issues, otherwise they’ll never climb out of the ‘lack of reliability’ hole they’ve dug themselves.
