Increase in fail whales
There is currently an increase in fail whales on Twitter. The fail whale is tweeted about every 2 or so minutes, it is now being tweeted about every few seconds. We don’t think its maintenance because they launched maintenance on there site a few days ago and dev.twitter.com yesterday. Twitter has probably been the worst uptime out of any major site except maybe foursquare but foursquare sneaks there downtime in in small bits Twitter is always going down for hours at the time.

We will update this post as it unfolds.
[Update] @twitterapi has tweeted that there are problems out and about.
