Amazon Down - Twitter Up!??

I had a surreal moment today when I discovered that Amazon.com - the most reliable eCommerce site around is down. Meanwhile, while Twitter - the most unrealiable microblogging website around - was up!

For awhile at least. Twitter went down shortly thereafter. Probably due to so many people tweeting about Amazon.

What's it gonna cost the seller of all things? Well, according to my Ad Age alert...the downtime is worht $1.8 Million dollars per hour.

Ouch. That's gotta hurt!
