Downtime is not good. We caused a database to fail during a routine update early this afternoon. We switched to a replica and expect this recovery to take place quickly. We’re all working on it and watching right now as Twitter gets back up to speed. We have a thread open on our support forum which we’ll update when we have more details to share. Getting our act together is something we continue to work on as we grow our company and our service.
