Twitter are down.
That's fine, tech system are born to fail, and might be down from time to time.
Not good, but probably won't kill them.
However, they are installed on many many blogs and their outage is causing these blogs to terribly hang on FireFox. Bad, Bad behavior.
I noticed that today on Ouriel's blog.
Now, he is a pro blogger with many many readers, I'm sure he is not pleasant from that.
I really hope for Twitter that the bloggers won't get mad and start blogging badly about that.
Having that, I published a post on outbrain blog today about that same issue of Graceful Degradation. Take a look.
