Is Twitter's breakneck growth causing a backlash? – CNN.com

Good article from CNN about Twitter.

Georganna asked me the other day why I am Twittering again.

I answered because I like it, but there’s another reason.

Everyone is talking about Twitter right now.

As I sit here recuperating from the flu I’m watching The Today Show, and Meredith Viera just mentioned Twitter.

I listen to a local AM radio station in the early morning, and the announcers mention Twitter daily.

So I have succumbed to the lure of advertising, for about the millionth time in my life (the last time was when I bought Sabra Hummus, one week ago).

Mentioned in the CNN article is the reality of Twitter not working. I just tried to find my local radio station on Twitter, and found the feature disabled because “Twitter is stressed out right now.”

Twitter is busy,in other words, and can’t handle all the traffic.

Fame is a bitch, huh?

Anyway, if you have the time (and you can’t use Twitter, like me), read the CNN article linked above.

As for me, I sure hope I feel well enough to go back to work tomorrow.

I’m not sure how many more episodes of CSI I can watch.
