OMG this is fun: Virtual gifts over Twitter: “Tweetgift is a simple way to show a little appreciation to a friend. all you need is a twitter account. Just reply to tweetgift and use our syntax to send gifts to your friends. Every gift starts with @tweetgift, then a friend’s username, and the gift with an optional message.”

Twitter is humming along now after a late night. Our team worked earnestly into the night and morning on our largest and most complex maintenance project ever. Everything went pretty much according to plan except for one thing: an incorrect switch.
The switch in question caps traffic an unacceptable level. In order to correct this, we’ll need to get some hardware installed. Unfortunately, that means we’re not done with our datacenter move just yet. This type of work can be frustrating but it’s all towards Twitter’s highest goal: reliability.

Last week Twitter stopped working over T-Mobile without notice. We were confused and jumped into the conversation on Get Satisfaction with limited information. Over the weekend we were able to determine that this was purely a technical issue between T-Mobile and Ericsson, the folks who serve our SMS traffic.

We announced on Friday that we were going to be doing some maintenance on Twitter all day today. It turns out we were able to do most of the work without taking Twitter offline. It may have been better referred to as a “maintenance window” but we wanted to make sure you were aware just the same.
