Twitter down ... again

Prior to jumping aboard the Twitter bandwagon, I had heard tell of the service's reliable unreliability. Now I'm getting to experience it first-hand ... and better understand all the grumbling.

Twitter tells us on its status blog: "We're experiencing some delays in the amount of time it takes for updates to appear in timelines. Working on this now."

Some delays? My incoming tweets have been silent for 45 minutes now, which is an eternity on Twitter (or evidence that no one loves me anyone).

Not that it matters, of course.

(Update: Starting to get some of the tweets that were hung up who-knows-where. Seeing speculation that the trouble is related to heavy MacWorld traffic. If that's true, Twitter's on even shakier footing than ealier believed.)
