Dear WTF Chuck – Twitter has $5M, why can’t they hire a Sys Admin?


Dear WTF Chuck,

Why is Twitter always down, despite them being flush with cash ($5mm), and all of their users whining for the past year about how much downtime they experience? Yet, we the users, go with the flow and don’t punish them (by leaving their service), because some of us are addicted to their service!

Go buy some servers and scale your operation! Hopefully moving hosts yesterday will better things.
