A #Twitter rant

For all the talk about how Facebook is supposedly becoming uncool and its growth has slowed, has anyone noticed that Facebook at least works 95% of the time, as opposed to Twitter, which seems to have 95% degraded service time lately?

Indeed, despite the World Cup being over, Twitter's performance (which groaned under the weight of the soccer tournament) hasn't seemed to improve that much. Some combination of "Twitter" "API" and "busy" seem to be the three words that show up most in my Twitter apps these days. And my inability to even login to Twitter for BlackBerry today made me *this* close to swearing off Twitter entirely.

Yes, it's a free service. Yes, it's growing tremendously. But it's also becoming increasingly unusable, unstable, and unreliable. How long until people decide, en masse, to abandon it?

And, yes, I'm aware that this is a first world complaint.

EDIT: The good news is that a reinstall of Twitter for Blackberry on Tuesday afternoon fixed the login issue. Thanks to @emilythepanda who pointed me to that solution, which, naturally, being a geek, I didn't bother to investigate on my own because it seemed too obvious.
