My First Twitter Crash



I just experienced my first twitter crash today.  It happened while I was typing a tweet about how we Christians should be mindful of our duty to win the lost and restore the backslider.  And to encourage Christians to be ready for the Great Harvest to come.

How could Twitter let me down this way?

You say you’re sorry! 

Okay, I forgive you.  This time!  He that repeateth a matter separateth very friends, don’t you know!

The popular microblogging service Twitter crashed Thursday morning, its second outage in slightly more than a month following an outage in June that lasted for more than three hours.

There’s evidence that a disruption is taking place on a global level.  Apparently, you’re not alone.  Google Talk just crashed too!

Did Twitter AND Google forget to pay their light bill?  Time will tell.

In the interim, the world must go on!

Patience really is a virtue that helps us maintain our perspective. 

Speaking of perspectives, it seems that Twitter crashes periodically according to this blog which happens to be the website where I found the above graphic.

The way some people tweet, I’m sure they’re experiencing DTT (Delirium Tweet Tremens) at this time, for I’ve never seen anyone tweet so many messages in my life.  I’m still fairly new to tweeting, but for now, if anyone tweets over 40 messages an hour, I will not follow them.  They exhaust me.

Maybe Twitter’s crashes are meant to get us to slow our pace?  I’m not sure, but one thing I do know is this: Thankfully God has never crashed!  He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever.  And for those of you who think I’m oversimplifying life around this matter, that’s okay. 

I can live with disagreement.

But I can’t live without love, and God is love.  And God is patient.  To learn more about patience, please look for my book release on soon.  I’m almost finished tweaking it!





One thought on “My First Twitter Crash

  1. *Makes mental note never to tweet more than 40 tweets* On another note, I agree that we should not consume ourselves with any form of social networking. It can take away from the important things in life like prayer and Bible Study. It’s glad to see another on fire for Christ! Awesome!
