Twitter, the social media tool that’s supposed to revolutionize politics, save the Republican Party, and bring freedom to Iran is, yet again, down.
Twitter.com is virtually useless but, because the service is open source, dozens of applications have sprung up to make it practical to actually use Twitter. But these apps, too, continually fail because of limitations brought on by something called API, which Twitter apparently can’t produce enough of.
If I could only use my phone or check and send email sporadically, I’d be looking for new service providers. If Twitter can’t solve its problems, I suspect people will flee for a service that can manage to operate.
Of course, since nobody can seem to figure out Twitter’s business model, that may be just as well.
