Twitter Status — Down for Maintenance

The micro-blogging site Twitter is down again but this time for planned network maintenance for a period of five hours between 11PM PST and 4AM PST (7AM GMT to 12 Noon GMT). Their hosting provider is upgrading a portion of their internal network starting July 31 at 11PM Pacific. The maintenance will last approximately five hours. During this time, some users are unable to use Twitter.

During this maintenance period, when some users tried to login to their twitter account, they saw the maintenance page (not the notorious Fail Whale), as pictured below:

We expect to be back in a few hours. Thanks for your patience.

Twitter’s hosting provider, NTT America, will begin scheduled maintenance at 11:00PM PT/06:00AM UTC. This maintenance will last approximately five hours.

Internet Marketing (Social Media) — Google

Social Media consists of media that support and encourage social interaction among users. For instance, online discussion forums are designed to allow people to post messages and for other users to respond in kind.
While there may be social aspects to any medium (e.g. links to share an article by email), social media typically refers to those media whose major functions are oriented toward sharing of information, and consequently most of the information on such media are generated by users. Common examples of social media sites are Twitter and Facebook.
Social media marketing is the process of promoting your site or business through social media channels.
