Twitter has made a big mistake in blaming its power users for its recent uptime problems. Specifically power users who follow a lot of people. This is like me blaming listeners because they are getting slow down loads of my show. Is it their fault? No It’s my fault for not having enough bandwidth in place.
Twitter just blew it big time. They essentially said hey your using the service so much your breaking it. Well guess what tough… They never put limits on how much you can use the service. They never limited how many people you could follow. How stupid to blame the people that are helping to evangelize the service. [Venture Beat]
