Twitter trouble

Not being a user, I understand from some blog-griping that there's been a bit of dissatisfaction with Twitter recently.

ReadWriteWeb offers some good online alternatives as well as some great offline suggestions.

On the offline front, I'd just like to add: shopping/malls, running into people on the street, knocking on someone's door and that old standard - snail-mail.

While these are good suggestions, Twitter has the critical mass needed for effective discussions and community building.

For instance, the entire PR community would have to congregate either on Pownce or Jaiku for the speedy interaction and breadth of participation that Twitter (under functioning circumstances) provides.

Until that happens, I think we'll all keep muddling along despite the anguish with which the servers at Twitter cause us.
