Twitter Login


Twitter’s  login page is directly accessible from the Twitter.com homepage-just look at the upper right hand corner of the screen and there is a drop down where you can click to sign in to Twitter. Twitter has been notorious for login problems and other issues, symbolized by the photo of the Twitter “fail whale” which the service puts up on their homepage when the site goes down. For a service used by millions of people worldwide, Twitter login performance has one of the worse track records compared to other mass-market web services.

Background

Twitter is  micro-blogging service based in San Francisco, CA. The company also has offices in San Antonio, Austin, Boston, and Salt Lake City. The company lets you send micro-blogs called tweets to your user base. Twitter is different from Facebook because it is not one-to-one meaning that you don’t have to become friends with users-you simply follow who you like to after you login to the Twitter service. Twitters founders are Jack Dorsey, Evan Williams, and Biz Stone, a group of innovators who sold a blogging company called Blogger to Google and then set out to build a micro-blogging service based on communicating in large groups. Twitter has received a ton of notoriety for its use in international protests and revolutions. Many popular politicians and celebrities also login to Twitter to stay in touch with their fans or constituents.

Competitors

Twitter doesn’t really have direct competitors besides existing social networking and email services like Facebook or Gmail. Twitter has one big competitor in the enterprise space called Yammer, which lets employees communicate within a corporate network much in the same way that Twitter.com users communicate.

Common Issues

The biggest issue with Twitter is uptime. Since its launch in 2007 Twitter users have always had trouble logging in to the service. The site goes down a lot and Twitter consistently gets a ton of media attention for their login going down. Let us know if you have any questions on Twitter in the discussion below!
