'USA Today' Crashes Twitter


Posted July 21, 2008 - By Ty Colfax

As is so typical with small-time internet companies, a little press push overloads them with users and crashes the site just as new people are trying to login and check them out. That's just what happened over the weekend as an expansive article in USA Today sent Twitter to the terlit.

Twitter folks quickly responded, saying that the site has been so successful, they haven't been able to keep up with the fast-growing demand and that they're hoping for a new investment to come in to help them stay on top of things.

Considering the typical USA Today reader, don't be surprised if you get some Twitter notices from your Grandma soon, provided the site gets back on its feet.

And, a quick check reveals Twitter is back up and running. It's usefulness, however, is still being debated.
