Twitter is on CNN’s front page again!



So Twitter is down again, and i just found out why:
There is a story about twitter on the front page of CNN, here is the stories link:
http://www.cnn.com/2008/TECH/06/05/twitter.maree/index.html
And it’s a continued (Part 2) real life story of the American student that was freed from an Egyptian jail because of a one twitter update (Tweet) that he sent right before he went in, the word was “arrested”.
Twitter is becoming more powerful than ever, but because of heavy API calls and the extreme amount of tweets every second, the site goes down almost every other day now.
I suggested to fix that problem, for twitter to have a paid section with more member privilege, kind of like Flickr or Pownce pro membership.
Another idea would be for a big Company like Google or Yahoo to buy twitter!

  1. I completely disagree on the first point. I think the last thing that Twitter needs is a “paid” version. Mainly because many people like Twitter because the fact that it’s completely free. Now about having Yahoo! or Google purchase it. I think it would be a great idea as long as people don’t have to see ads anywhere on Twitter. As again, many people like it for the fact that it’s ad free. I think that they should just take down the website for one week (I know, harsh), and while it was down for that said week, completely fix all fixable problems. I believe the week would be worth it to see a once again stable Twitter.
