Who schedules a maintenance during the middle of the day?
My normal routine consists of me waking up, checking twitter for relevant and shareable content, scanning through Flipboard, and reading through my RSS feeds. In order to avoid bombarding my followers with endless tweets, I use a tool like Buffer to spread them out throughout the day.
On March 13th, something terrible happened. BufferApp was down (and still is down, as I write this post). Myself, and many others on Twitter did not know what to do with themselves without Buffer’s services.
