I've been Tweeting more or less for the better part of a year.

Twitter has been down, more or less, for the better part of a year.

Clearly this organization did not take their rate of growth into account when designing (and redesigning) their architecture. No matter what they claim.

If I knew who our salesperson was for them, I'd send 'em off with a personal note, but even though I've met most of our salespeople at company functions, I only feel like I actually know two of them.

So instead, to help Twitter resolve their problems, I'm done Tweeting.

I'll take the month of July off, reduce their bandwidth, save them from the burden of carrying my oh-so-clever commentary and oh-so-important updates across their servers.

I suggest you do the same. Give them the opportunity to fix the problems, reduce their burden!

When you think about it, there's not much to Tweeting anyway. What can be said in 140 words is rarely enlightening or even impactful.

So if you're one of the people who follows me on Twitter, see you in a month.

If you're not, sign up and keep me honest. I sometimes find that I have something to say that I absolutely must Tweet to share with the world (though often the world doesn't care, that's the nature of Tweets!).

Don.
