This Is What Twitter Does Not Want To Happen, Part Five

OK, this is just plain embarrassing:


Click = big

I clicked to go to best-selling writer Colson Whitehead’s Twitter page and got that.

For the past half hour, Twitter has been having a sort of meltdown, throwing out error messages like that for both individual tweets I’ve clicked to as well as Twitter home pages.

Could you imagine clicking in Google+ to a Google Profile and seeing that when it wasn’t true?

Never.

This is doubly embarrassing given the news today about Google+.

Twitter sinking into unreliability (again!) is its own advertisement for people to go elsewhere.

  1. The exact same thing happened to me on Wednesday trying to view @davewiner’s profile. Thinking I might have misremembered his Twitter handle, I also tried to search for @davewiner and “Dave Winer,” getting only messages like “no such user” and “no such page.”

      It was happening to me with just about everything during that half hour yesterday. Never saw that happen on Twitter ever before.
