If absence makes the heart grow fonder, then lot's of folks are growing fonder and fonder of Twitter every day lately.
Compete.com says Twitter's traffic is up 30% this month and nearly 900% for the year.
That's good old-fashioned dot-com-boom style growth.
Now, if Twitter can only monetize their service --that's also a dot-com-boom era conundrum.
Everything old really is new again.
At least this time, we have better "site unavailable" graphics.
Not to mention "Twitter is stressed" sounds better than "Site Temporarily Unavailable" or "Error 500."
