Follow Me on Twitter @rustybrickAs many of you know, Twitter had some issues yesterday. It wasn't just Twitter, but Twitter got the most hurt from the DoS attack. If you haven't heard the news then (1) you were away, (2) you don't use twitter, (3) you don't read or watch the news or (4) you aren't reading this blog. If you fall into any of those cases, pick one of the hundreds of headlines on this story from Techmeme.

I was watching the news last night, while holding my 3 month old baby, and up came the news about Twitter being down most of the day. This was on prime time TV. I know Twitter is incredibly popular, especially amongst us and Hollywood, but a serious one-minute spot on all the major news channels? I really don't get that - but what do I know.

When Twitter was down for me, I did what most people do, I worked. In fact, it took me a while to notice Twitter was down. I rarely use the Twitter web site, I use TweetDeck to manage my Tweets, without it, I couldn't use Twitter.

In any event, it is really nice to see Twitter get so much attention, I hope they work out these attacks and if you are on Twitter, make sure to follow me at @rustybrick.
