Breaking news causes Twitter fail

Wow, within just a few minutes after a big after shock hit Haiti, the Twitter home page was showing the Fail Whale, and it still does now (more than one hour later).

A lot of retweets happening at the same time seem to cause a system overload. Once again shows that Twitter is being used as a news source for a lot of people world wide.

[update]
Twitter is back, but doesn't mention the exact cause of the outage:

... A sudden failure coupled with problems in switching to a backup system ...


Twitter and Last.fm

Today I integrated my Quickies-posts (listed on the right side of the main page) with my Twitter account. You can follow my tweets here: http://twitter.com/elmartino74. Quickie-posts are now published to my Twitter account through Twitterfeed.

A while ago, I added a nice little feature on the site here which shows my last played track via Last.fm. If I'm listening to the track at the time you load the page, a nice little icon Equalizer icon is shown next to it. By the way, Last.fm is now publishing The Best of 2009 lists. The second part was just put online.

This year they included a Michael Jackson special which features a really nice diagram (cllick to see full size).
