Now this is just ridiculous, Twitter and Foursquare down
Ok so yesterday Twitter went down and then had API issues after appointing a new CEO, Foursquare went down for about 11 hours and now, they’re both down… again. The problem with Foursquare is there database management and architecture, the site is growing fast and all the check-ins are causing problems. Facebook and Friendfeed were also down a few weeks ago and the only site staying up right now seems to be Shoutitout so kudos to you. The error page is the technically wrong page not the capacity problem fail whale page. Foursquare talked in a blog post yesterday about how bad there downtime was, well, its worse than they thought. We don’t have much information on the Foursquare outage or if there working on it because of the Twitter issues, Twitter hasn’t given us any proof they’re aware of there issues either. So Twitter and Foursquare fix your selfs or i’m covering everything to Shoutitout. We will tell you if an when they come back up.
