Is twitter dead?

It’s weird how attached I’ve become to this service, but connectivity to the service has been rather hit or miss for the last couple of weeks. And now it’s been completely unreachable since some point last night.

I understand that this is a free service and how can you really complain about something you get for nothing? Well, while I don’t consider twitter a service I would ever pay money for, but I’ve never been opposed to ads integrated with the tweets.

In this world of web 2.0 services, you either need to be able to scale to the demand or die a slow horrible death. It seems as though twitter is heading for the latter.
