So there you have it, the netizens are responding fast and furious to the constant downtime of Twitter.

First came devices to test if Twitter was down. Solutions like this help users ‘investigate’ if the problem existed. ISTWITTERDOWN seems to be an excellent example of this.

Then the net sprouted Plurk and new platforms that seek to REPLACE twitter. These platforms offered new applications, new forms and created new databases. Some loved it, others find it a hassle to move on as they face the inertia of transporting their existing network to the new platform. Mostly, users are not sure nor confident about the new platform as well!

Then comes the third wave. Netizens trying to remedy the problem. Here’s one great example, TWIDDICT. For users who are die hard fans of twitter, they created a temporary platform to host the number of posts whilst Twitter remains down. When Twitter goes up again, your posts will automatically be made.

Let’s see what’s next..
