    Did you notice that Twitter was/is down?

    Well, I finally decided to sign up for Twitter to help promote an iPhone app I am developing. So, I created an account and hired someone to give me 30k followers.

    Later, I tried to see how many followers I had and the site was not working. I tried it on another computer, another IP, blah, blah, blah.

    I thought, "Wow, they caught me and shut down all access... I can't even get to Twitter.com!"

    Later I read that Twitter is down for most people.

    So, no, Twitter is not down because of me... or is it???

    You do what - add 30k to Twitter?

    Maybe Twitter is just shocked that I created an account. My business is based on internet marketing but I do not have a Facebook page. I didn't have Twitter until now.

    Maybe I will sign up for Facebook on Monday and bring it down... hahaha

    But Twitter is shocked. It's like, "Wow... look who it is... CoyoteAssassin is creating an account... with us... nice!"

    Not saying Twitter can't handle 30k followers.

    It's like sex. You can watch a film with two people but image the shock if the two people were your parents...

    Bad analogy, but hopefully that gets the point across.

    Again, Twitter can handle 30k but it is shocked that I signed on so it is in a state of confusion.

    I added 180k followers to different people of a day so I doubt it crashed their servers. They were probably get DDOSED by some hack forums newbs.

    I think your sense of humor goes strait over some members heads.
    Don't let BTB open an account the internet will break.
    But I made use of my time by going to the mall writing my thoughts on little pieces
    of paper and handing them out to random strangers.

    lol this is funny. You didn't crash twitter. Why would someone even try to take credit for them being down for an hour? This world and it's people are so shallow. SorryNotSorry
