The bummer is that I have been working this afternoon to connect the WordPress plugin "twitter_updater" to the newly created "voxeo" account on Twitter so that we could provide another way to receive notifications of new blog posts. Now I have no way to test that out until Twitter comes back up.
And yes, I could have simply used Twitterfeed to connect the RSS feed for all our blog entries to the Twitter account, but: a) the Twitterfeed.com site has been down most of the day; b) using this plugin gives me finer granularity of which blogs will update the Twitter site; and c) this plugin will post to Twitter when there is a new entry versus with Twitterfeed where it polls every so often.
I've heard from folks that Twitter is getting multiple mentions on NPR here in the US today, so that may be driving more attention to the site. If that is the issue, are we seeing more signs of the scalability issues with Twitter? (that have bitten us before?)
