Cell phones, Twitter, change business-as-usual
Since the new cell phone laws go into effect on July 1, I’ve been keeping new technology, Twitter, on the horizon ready to jump on – at least in some minor capacity – at some point. Now may be that time. However, I guess I’m not alone…as I tried to log in a minute ago, here’s the message I received…
Now I know why, having just scanned one of my favorite sites, Transparent Real Estate. I can usually find what’s really going on at TransparentRE. Here’s apparently why Twitter may be down now from Pat Kitano’s post of 5/26/08:
“Twitter.com isn’t actually the primary recipient of its web traffic, Larry Dignan @ ZDNet says 90% of Twitter traffic are its API calls. On the negative side, Twitter now has famous network down times because too many users are accessing Tweeter via those applications.”
I keep up to date on new technologies from my internet marketing gurus, Pat Kitano and Kevin Boer at 3 Oceans Real Estate. Thanks to you both for helping us stay at the top of our game! I plan on joining the Real Estate Connect 2008 Twitter group – which will be my first experience with real-time communication with colleagues while at a conference. Talk about being connected. Here’s some specifics from the Inman site:
Hope to connect with you at the Inman event next month.
