When you can’t update your profile photo, send a Tweet, or even sign on to Twitter, it’s frustrating. We know that, and we’ve had too many of these issues recently.

As we said last month, we are working on long-term solutions to make Twitter a more reliable and stable platform. It’s our number one priority. The bulk of our engineering efforts are currently focused on this issue, and we have moved resources from other projects to focus on it.

For much more background, J.P. Cozzatti from our engineering team discusses our efforts and recent issues today in a post on the Twitter Engineering blog. In a separate, but closely related post on the Engineering blog, we discuss something we’ve been working toward for some time: We’re moving into our own dedicated data center this fall. This will be a big step forward.
