Twitter Survives WWDC, Declares Victory
June 10th, 2008 By: Rich Miller
After touting improvements to its infrastructure to prepare for yesterday’s Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), Twitter managed to stay online throughout the event, with a few brief exceptions. Twitter’s Biz Stone reports:
Our preparations held and Twitter stayed up. Only one unexpected disruption occurred and that was a network problem in our data center which caused a few minutes of service disruption some time after Steve Jobs’ keynote. With that single disruption, our uptime during the event was 97.3%
Yeah, I know. Many of you wouldn’t be celebrating 97 percent uptime. But it’s a step in the right direction for Twitter, which has experienced ongoing reliability problems. Additional coverage at TechCrunch.
