Apple Tablet Announcement Fallout Already Stressing Twitter
The hype around today's expected Apple Tablet announcement is already taking its toll on social media outlets; with Steve Jobs yet to take the stage, Twitter is already suffering fairly major timeline delays already. So much for that whole real time comment thing.
As of 12:30pm ET, Twitter timeline stopages or delays of up to 10 minutes are being reported by users. Once the actual announcement comes at 1:00pm E.T., don't be surprised if a small mushroom cloud is visible above Twitter's Folsom Street offices in San Francisco.
Hopefully they'll be able to do a whole Steve Austin "we can rebuild him" thing on the system by the time President Obama takes center stage tonight. Of course, we all know he doesn't have quite the star power of a frigging Apple computer.
